ASTM C-1315

Standard Specifications for Liquid Membrane Forming Curing Compounds and Curing and Sealing Compounds.

The new ASTM specification that deals with curing and sealing compounds. It does not replace ASTM C-309 which covers membrane forming curing compounds. ASTM C-1315 allows design engineers and architects to distinguish high performance materials with particular characteristics desirable for various types of projects. An outline of the specification's requirements follows:
