AbstractTwelve bituminous sealants were installed and their performance monitored. Performance did not correlate to standard test result. This was related to the effect of installation on performance and to an inappropriate material specification. Installation issues were addressed by the publication of the state-of-the-art practice. Specification issues are being addressed by the development of performance specifications that account for sealant aging, rheology, and adhesion.
