    Twenty-five peer-reviewed papers provide the latest scientific research in the building and construction industry for all aspects of sealant and adhesive durability.

    Topics include:

    Laboratory Testing and Specialized Outdoor Exposure Testing—characterization of adhesive joints for hybrid steel-glass beams; in situ measurement of compression set in building sealants during outdoor aging; adhesive joints in glass and solar engineering; and more.

    Factors Influencing the Durability of Sealed Joints and Adhesive Fixing—durability of cold-bent insulating glass units; adhesion of elastomeric silicone sealants to polymeric substrates; mechanical characteristics of degraded silicone bonded point supports; glass unit corner loading; asphalt blistering on concrete bridges; interfacial durability of silicone adhesives in building applications.

    Development of New Test Methods and Performance-Based Specifications—quantification of surface degradation and evaluation of outdoor and accelerated exposure of construction sealants; introduction to ASTM C1736; sealed joint performance for selection of sealants suitable for autoclaved lightweight concrete panels; testing approach for structural glazing; and modulus changes during durability tests on building joint sealants.

    Field Experience with Sealed Joints and Adhesive Fixing—moisture sensitive adhesives and flooring adhesive failures and case studies of adhesive and rigid insulation board failures due to moisture in low sloped roofing assemblies.

    Performance under Seismic Loads—seismic racking test evaluation of silicone; evaluation of structural sealant in four-sided structural sealant glazing curtain wall system; and review of structural silicone glazing systems subjected to a mega-earthquake.
