Standard Test Method for Compatibility of Insulating Glass Edge Sealants with Liquid-Applied Glazing Materials
|Publication Date:||1 May 2020|
|ICS Code (Glass products):||81.040.30|
This test method covers a laboratory procedure for quantitatively measuring the compatibility of liquid-applied glazing materials with an insulating glass unit edge sealant. Compatibility is determined by measuring the changes in the insulating glass edge sealant adhesive and cohesive properties. Hereinafter insulating glass is referred to as IG.
This test method does not address the issue of the integrity of the hermetic seal or changes to the vision area in an IG unit. Such factors as possible unit fogging or primary sealant reaction in a dual-seal system due to volatile components permeating the IG sealant are not considered in this test method.
