    Twelve peer-reviewed papers cover the latest information, gained from laboratory research and field work, on sealant and adhesive durability and the development of new products and test methods. Topics cover:

    Factors Influencing the Durability of Sealed Joints and Adhesive Fixations—these factors include reducing modulus of sealants; calculating differential thermal movement in insulating glass edge seals using finite element analysis; and reducing tin and aminosilane concentration in silicon elastomeric coating

    Durability Studies of Sealants and Adhesives—papers discuss the weatherability and durability of one-component sealants; durability of silane curable organic sealants; and durability of two-sided SSG curtain walls under cyclic racking displacements

    Development of New Test Methods and Performance Based Specifications—standards development proposals include a practical method to evaluate the fatigue properties of structural silicone glazing adhesives; a novel testing method to study weatherability of construction sealants; the use of optical imaging and an image analysis system to assess surface changes induced in sealants by outdoor weathering; and much more.
