Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. It explains the properties and functions of various materials, such as sealant, sealant backing, and primer, among others; and, procedures such as, substrate cleaning and priming, and installation of the components of a sealed joint. It presents guidelines for the use and application of the various materials, design asym a sealant joint for a specific application, and environmental conditions and effects that are known to detrimentally affect a sealant joint.
The information and guidelines adtm also useful for those that supply accessories to the sealant industry and for those that install sealants and accessory materials associated with sealant use. Considering the range of properties of commercially available sealants, the variety of joint designs possible, and the many conditions of use, the information contained herein is general in nature.
ASTM C1193 – 16
However, a sealant and sealant joint will also have a service life. The intent is for service life to meet or exceed design life. There are many factors that can affect service life including type of sealant polymer, sealant formulation, compatibility with adjacent materials, installation techniques or deficiencies, sealant joint design or lack thereofproper maintenance or lack thereofand environmental exposure, among others.
The designer of a joint seal should take the above into consideration when designing and specifying sealants for certain applications.
For example, a building owner may require a ashm courthouse building to have an expected design life of 50 years. Therefore, elements of the building’s exterior envelope should, with proper maintenance, be expected to perform for that time period.

As a result of the information in 4. Proper maintenance could include replacement of localized sealant and sealant joint failures and conceivably complete sealant replacement, 1c193 more than once, during that 50 year time period depending on a sealant’s polymer base and its particular formulation. Sealant replacement needs to be considered and when needed should be easily accomplished.
Including joints on buildings and related adjacent areas, such as plazas, decks, and pavements for vehicular or pedestrian use, and types of construction other astk highways and airfield pavements and bridges.
ASTM C – 09 Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants
Information in this guide is primarily applicable to a single and multi-component, cold liquid-applied joint sealant and secondarily to a precured sealant when used with a properly prepared joint opening and substrate surfaces. Guide C should be consulted for this information. Additionally, it also does not provide information or guidelines for the use of a sealant in an insulating glass unit edge seal used in a structural sealant glazing application.
