$ 68.00 In stock

Significance and Use

The intent of this guide is to provide information and guidelines for the selection of materials for joint seals in, or adjacent to, EIFS.

Joints need to be designed for the expected movements and construction tolerances so an appropriate joint width can be established.


1.1 This guide describes the use of single and multi-component, cold-applied joint sealants, or precured sealant systems for joint sealing applications, or both, in buildings using exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) on one or both sides of the joint. Refer to for joint seal geometries.

1.2 The elastomeric sealants described by this guide meet the requirements of Specifications C 834, C 920, or C 1311.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided 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. For specific hazard statements, see Notes 1 and 2.

1.5 There are no ISO standards similar or equivalent to this ASTM standard.
