|Publication Date:||15 September 2018|
|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
This specification covers the basic requirements for cylindrical sealant backing to be used with cold liquid applied sealants for use in building seals.
Cylindrical sealant backing serves one or more of the following functions:
Limits the amount and depth of sealant applied into a joint,
Acts as a bond breaker to allow joint movement without undue stress to the sealant,
Provides a form to assist the sealant in developing the proper shape factor, and
Acts as a barrier to the flow of sealant through the joint.
