Sealant, test specimen, cohesion, adhesion, test


This article presents research dealing with the issue of sealing cement-based materials and the tensile properties of the sealed joint. Several types of materials used are selected for the research presented in this article. Aquapanel cement board is chosen as the base material, then sealants are selected, namely one representative of acrylic sealants and one representative of polyurethane sealants. Primers are used for the selected sealants, which are selected on the based of the manufacturer's recommendations. Test specimens are made of these materials, which are further tested after proper curing and conditioning. The tests are performed according to the procedures set by the European standard ČSN EN ISO 8340. Based on the test results, only polyurethane sealant can be recommended for sealing the base material presented in this research. Acrylic sealant shows excessive damage after testing.
