Description / Abstract:

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 strip seal is an elastomeric extrusion. This extrusion is either a membrane or tubular having an internal baffle system produced continuously and longitudinally throughout the material. These extrusions are secured in or over a joint by locking rails or an end dam nosing material. The architectural strip seal is compressed and expanded by this mechanical or chemical attachment.

NOTE 1 - Movement capability is defined in Test Method E 1399.

This specification covers all colors of architectural strip seals.

NOTE 2 - The products described in this specification are manufactured from thermoplastic elastomers defined as "fully cured elastomeric alloys" in Test Method D 5048.
