AbstractThe mechanical properties of sealants have been examined in a series of studies. The present paper examines the extension and load at failure of chemically cured, one- component silicone sealants as a function of test temperature. The test specimens were an approximate representation of the geometry of sealant beads used in building joints. It is shown that there is a change in adhesive properties as the temperature varies. Test conditions for further investigations are selected on the basis of the results obtained.
