A number of years have passed since the expertise of those closely involved in the sealant, glass, and glazing industry has been organized uniformly to present new applications, developments, and status in the industry. This symposium was organized to fill an overdue need to focus industry expertise in the following categories with planned symposium concentration roughly divided by the indicated percentages: new developments, 50 percent new applications, 25 percent status or state of the art, 25 percent Past and current practice in dry-glazed pressure curtain-wall applications, problems which have occurred, and proposed solutions including gasket design, represent both new developments and new applications in curtain-wall design. Test methods, data, and design parameters concentrating on structural properties of lock-strip gaskets will provide designers and users with new, useful information. Use of silicone as a structural element in glazing is a significant, new, innovative development in the field.
