Revised Bestseller Offers Broad-Based Knowledge to a Wide Range of Technical Professionals The definitive guide to sealing operations in construction, this latest edition of Sealants in Construction focuses on the most current technology, methods, applications, and standards relevant to sealant performance. Providing guided direction on how to choose and apply sealants, determine the properties of those sealants, and test and establish the cause of sealant failures, it addresses the design and engineering of structurally glazed systems and the chemistry and properties of various generic types including silicones, hybrids, and urethanes. Divided into two parts, the book first covers basic topics relevant to the practical side of construction sealants, and is geared toward those interested in choosing the proper sealant. The second half introduces advanced topics that are more technical, includes historical context along with practical examples, and is directed toward anyone requiring more depth in these areas. An indispensable resource essential to your collection, this book: Explains the proper way to test sealants Evaluates standard test methods that are used with construction sealants Provides examples of emerging test methods appropriate for use with construction and highway sealants Outlines methods for calculating the required joint sizes in conventional sealing, glazing, and structural glazing Details the composition of the most popular types of sealants and hybrids Sealants in Construction covers the use of sealants in the construction industry and aims for the increased use of nondestructive test methods for all sealant applications and a more integrated quality management approach to sealing operations. This book is of interest to architects, contractors, engineers, sealant manufacturers, and students, and is relevant to a variety of technical disciplines.

Adhesives and sealants play a vital role in building construction and maintenance, helping to keep contaminants from entering or exiting a structure. The high-utility handbook covers the full array of adhesives, caulks, and sealants available today, showing how to select and use the optimum material for such applications as insulating glass, membranes, firewalls, and swimming pools. Architects, contractors, and facilities managers will find detailed information on the properties and limitations of epoxies, hot melts, polyesters, nitrites, neoprenes, acrylic, butyls, polyurethanes, and silicones--plus, expert guidance on designing joints, preparing surfaces, and ensuring proper bonding conditions for specific applications.
