Abstract

A new hybrid in-situ sealant-testing device that uses movement to both characterize and fatigue standard ASTM C719 sealant samples is described. This five sample device, records the force-response data for every deformation cycle of every sample. From this information, the maximum tensile and the molecular weight between cross-links are determined. Results are presented for a representative silicon sealant subjected to cyclic tensile and compressive displacements during the cure period of 25 % of the joint width.
