Standard Specification for Preformed Architectural Compression Seals for Buildings and Parking Structures
|Publication Date:||15 June 1994|
|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
1.1 This specification covers the physical requirements for the fully cured elastomeric alloy and the movement capabilities of preformed architectural compression seals used for sealing expansion joints in buildings and parking structures. The preformed architectural compression seal is a rectangular elastomeric extrusion, having an internal baffle system produced continuously and longitudinally throughout the material. The architectural compression seal functions under compression and is usually chemically bonded in place with an adhesive.
NOTE 1--Movement capability is defined in Test Method E 1399.
1.2 This specification covers all colors of architectural compression seals.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
