Features the most up-to-date knowledge about building sealant behavior. This edition covers important field data and the latest information on ongoing research in sealant durability, product performance evaluation and glazing. Eleven comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers are presented in three key categories:
Durability -- four papers assess the strength and endurance of numerous sealants, including actual field experience from a waterproofing contractor.
Products and Applications -- Five papers explore alternative sealant products and their various uses.
Glazing -- a case history explains how reglazing impacts a building with defective structural sealant design and installation.
The final paper features extensive information on current European standards for Insulted Glass Unit (IGU) testing.
