|Publication Date:||1 July 2017|
|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
This European Standard specifies definitions and requirements for sealants used for sealing of joints applied in sanitary areas in the interior of buildings exposed to non-pressurized water.
It covers joints in:
- domestic kitchens;
- prefabricated elements in sanitary areas (e.g. shower cubicles).
Industrial, drinking water, underwater (swimming pools, sewage systems, etc.), food contact applications and sealing of glass-ceramic cooktop panels (stove tops, ceramic hobs) are excluded from the scope.
This European Standard does not provide criteria or recommendations for the design of joints and installation of sealants in sanitary applications.
NOTE Provisions on assessment and verification of constancy of performance - AVCP (i.e. Product type determination and Factory Production Control) and marking of these products are given in EN 15651-5.
This European Standard does not apply to non-structural sealants in any of non-paste form, to those used in sanitary joints and to oil-based mastics.
