Recommendations

Over 200 RILEM Technical Recommendations have been produced by RILEM Technical Committees. Many of these recommendations have been adopted in research and practice, and are used by international standardisation bodies, as a basis for their work.

All RILEM recommendations reflect the state-of-the-art at the time of publishing. Note that these documents may be superseded later by more recent recommendations.

Weatherproofing joint seals in light-weight building
façades (curtain-wall cladding)are exposed to frequent
cyclic movements.This joint movement imposes cyclic
mechanical strain on the seal,which,depending on the
exposure conditions and the construction design,can
vary substantially in rate and amplitude.The joint seals
are subjected to movement immediately after installation
and are therefore exposed to continuous cyclic move -
ment during their curing period.During cure,the rheo-
logical characteristics of cured-in-place sealants gradually
change from being viscous,semi-fluid materials to non-
flowable elastomers and most sealants,in particular one-
component products,can take a considerable time (over
four weeks)to cure.Continuous building movement
coupled with slow sealant curing time can lead to per-
manent and detrimental changes in sealant bead geome-
try and performance characteristics.
During their entire service life,joint seals are
exposed to cyclic mechanical strain and environmental
degradation factors.Cyclic joint movement,sunlight,
temperature variations (heat,cold)and moisture (water)
are considered to be the primary environmental and ser-
vice degradation factors leading to sealed joint failure.
This technical recommendation provides a framework
for assessing the effects of cyclic movement and weathering
in a laboratory-based procedure.While default values for
the test parameters are provided in the test method,test
conditions can be adapted by the experimenter to better
reproduce local climatic or service conditions.
