Standard Test Method for Staining of Porous Substrate by Joint Sealants
|Publication Date:||1 January 2006|
|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
This test method covers four types of laboratory tests to determine if a joint sealant has a probability of staining a porous substrate (such as marble, limestone, sandstone, and granite). The tests are on compressed samples and include (1) storage under standard laboratory conditions, (2) storage in an oven, and (3) exposure in a fluorescent UV/condensation device, and (4) exposure in a xenon arc device.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
