    ASTM C1087

    Significance and Use

    In structural sealant glazing systems, the sealant functions as the structural adhesive and may also function as the primary weather seal. As the structural adhesive, the integrity of the adhesive bond is critical.

    Changes in color and adhesion after exposure are two of the criteria that can be used to determine the compatibility of the system. Experience has shown that accessories that cause loss of adhesion or discoloration in this test method may also cause these occurrences in actual use.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers a laboratory screening procedure for determining the compatibility of liquid-applied structural sealant glazing sealants when in contact with accessories such as dry glazing gaskets, spacers, shims, and setting blocks after exposure to heat and ultraviolet light.

    1.2 This test method includes the observation of three parameters as follows:

    1.2.1 Changes in the color of the sealant,

    1.2.2 Changes in the adhesion of the sealant to glass, and

    1.2.3 Changes in the adhesion of the sealant to the accessory being tested.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    Note 1—At this time, no comparable ISO standard exists.
