Standard Specification for Preformed Polychloroprene Elastomeric Joint Seals for Concrete Pavements
|Publication Date:||25 January 1991|
|ICS Code (Road construction):||93.080.10|
This specification covers the material requirements for preformed polychloroprene elastomeric joint seals for concrete pavements. The seal consists of a multiple web design and functions only by compression of the seal between the faces of the joint with the seal folding inward at the top to facilitate compression. The seal is installed with a lubricant and is designed to seal the joint and reject incompressibles.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
This standard does not purport to address 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.
NOTE 1 - This specification is a manufacturing and purchasing specification only and does not include requirements or considerations for selection of size, or the installation of the joint seals. However, experience has shown that successful performance of this product depends upon the proper selection of size and cross-sectional design of the joint seal, joint size, and joint spacing for the ambient conditions the pavement will be exposed to, and care in the installation of the joint seals.
