Standard Test Method for Durability of Sealants Exposed to Continuous Immersion in Liquids

|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
This test method covers a laboratory procedure that assists in determining the durability of a sealant and its adhesion to a substrate while continuously immersed in a liquid. This method tests the influence of a liquid on the sealant and its adhesion to a substrate. It does not test the added influence of constant stress from hydrostatic pressure that is often present with sealants used in submerged and below-grade applications, nor does it test the added influence of stress from joint movement while immersed. This method also does not (in its standard form) test the added influence of acids or caustics or other materials that may be in the liquid, in many applications.
