    Most performances of a two-part commercial sealant for insulating glass based on hydroxylated polybutadiene are reviewed and compared with those shown by a conventionnal two-part sealant based on polysulfide. First are examined the handling properties. Then are discussed the adhesion and mechanical characteristics. The ageing effect due to both actions of water and ultra-violet radiations and the permeability to argon are studied on standard insulating glass specimens.
