ASTM-D5893 › Standard Specification for Cold Applied, Single Component, Chemically Curing Silicone Joint Sealant for Portland Cement Concrete Pavements
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers two types of cold applied, single component, chemically curing silicone sealants that are based on polymers of polysiloxane structures, and are intended for use in sealing joints and cracks in Portland cement concrete highway and airfield pavements. This specification does not address the properties required of sealants for use in areas of Portland cement concrete pavements subject to jet fuel or other fuel spillage, such as vehicle or aircraft refueling and maintenance areas, or a combination thereof. Type NS (non-sag) sealant resists sagging after application in horizontal joints and requires tooling or forming into the joint to achieve the desired application configuration. Type SL (self-leveling) sealant, on the other hand, has sufficient flow characteristics to form a smooth and level surface in horizontal joints without tooling or forming after application. Specimens shall be sufficiently sampled for testing, and shall conform accordingly to the following requirements: cure evaluation; rheological properties; extrusion rate; tack-free time; effects of heat aging; non-immersed, water-immersed, and oven-aged bond characteristics; hardness; flow characteristics; rubber properties in tension such as ultimate elongation and tensile stress; and effects of accelerated weathering.

1.1 This specification covers cold applied, single component, chemically curing silicone sealants that are based on polymers of polysiloxane structures and are intended for use in sealing joints and cracks in portland cement concrete highway and airfield pavements. The specification includes both non-sag and self-leveling types of sealants.
1.1.1 This specification does not purport to cover the properties required of sealants for use in areas of portland cement concrete pavements subject to jet fuel or other fuel spillage, such as vehicle or aircraft refueling and maintenance areas, or a combination thereof.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section , of this specification: 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. Specific precautionary statements are given in .
