Active Standard ASTM C1635 | Developed by Subcommittee: C24.30
Book of Standards Volume: 04.07
1.1 This test method describes a laboratory procedure for measuring the adhesion/cohesion properties of a sealant when subjected to tensile loads resulting from an applied specified strain. The adhesion/cohesion properties are evaluated before, during, and after water immersion.
1.2 This test method examines the adhesive and cohesive performance of a sealant on a specified substrate at a strain equivalent to a multiple of the strain/movement capability designated by the manufacturer for the given sealant per Specification C 920.
1.3 The values stated in SI (metric) units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
