Significance and Use
Extrudability measurements of latex sealants serve to indicate only their ease of application; they do not predict the performance capability of the compound after installation.
This test method also measures freeze-thaw and heat stability of such sealants.
1.1 This test method covers a laboratory procedure for the determination of extrudability of latex sealants after freeze-thaw and heat cycling.
1.2 The values stated in metric (SI) units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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—Currently there is no ISO standard similar to this test method.
