    Abstract

    Field-applied bridge or band-aid joints have had limited use for many years, and shop molded, preformed silicone sealants have been used on a very limited basis in the U.S. for less than 10 years, primarily in remedial work. Two major sealant manufacturers have recently introduced preformed silicone sealant tape for application as bridge joints. These materials, though relatively expensive compared to typical wet-applied sealant joints, are well suited for use on many remedial projects. Several recent applications are discussed, and specific joint configurations are described. Advantages and disadvantages are presented, and recommendations for use and application are made.
