||Back to Top
|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.
