Functional Statement:

F61

To resist the ingress of precipitation, water or moisture from the exterior or from the ground.

F63

To limit moisture condensation.

F61

To resist the ingress of precipitation, water or moisture from the exterior or from the ground.

F51

To maintain appropriate air and surface temperatures.

F54

To limit drafts.

F63

To limit moisture condensation.

Objective:

OH1.1, OH1.3, OH1.2

 

APPLICATION:

Sealing compound used to seal glass components of factory-sealed double-glazed units to sash components of windows, in buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9].

INTENT:

To limit the probability of premature failure of the glass-to-sash seal or of the edge seal of the glass component, which could lead to:
  • condensation,
  • precipitation ingress,
  • inadequate control of temperatures in interior spaces,
  • drafts, or
  • water accumulation.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting,
  • deterioration, which could lead to compromised integrity of windows or adjacent exterior wall assemblies, or
  • the generation of pollutants from the chemical reaction of incompatible sealants.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces,
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons, and
  • contact with moisture.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

APPLICATION:

Sealing compound used to seal glass components of factory-sealed double-glazed units to sash components of windows, in buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9].

INTENT:

To limit the probability of premature failure of the glass-to-sash seal or of the edge seal of the glass component, which could lead to compromised structural integrity of window assemblies and adjacent exterior wall assemblies, which could lead to wetting from condensation on the interior surface of windows or precipitation ingress, which could lead to deterioration, which could lead to harm to persons.
