    Abstract

    The chemistry of Thiokol LP® liquid polysulfide polymers and their ambient temperature vulcanization to rubbery products is presented. Compounding, chemical and physical properties, testing, and specification data for polysulfide building sealants are also included.

    Application techniques, joint design, and recommended practices for the installation of polysulfide sealants in building, heavy construction, and highway areas are discussed. The aforementioned cover expansion joints, glazing, curtain walls, canals, decks, and highways.

    Keywords:

    sealers, construction materials, polysulfide polymers, elastic properties
