1.1 This test method evaluates the impact of an induced tear on a sealant specimen that is dimensioned, cured according to the guidelines in Test Method C719 and then subjected to a constant strain. It is effective in differentiating between sealants that are used in dynamic joints subject to abrasion, punctures, tears, or combination thereof.

1.2 Since this test method is for the evaluation of tear propagation, an adhesive failure to the substrates provides no usable data regarding tear propagation. This would be considered a failed test and that data would be discarded, or at least separated from the other data from specimens that did not experience an adhesive failure.

1.3  This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.4 The committee with jurisdiction over this standard is not aware of any comparable standards published by other organizations.

1.5  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
