Wide joint should be 3⁄8 in. ‐wide joint should be 1⁄2 in. deep (32 × 13 mm). To determine the required width for a sealant joint in a particular location in a building, many factors must be considered. The spacing between movement joints, the particular materials used, and the climate at the building location are some of these factors. ” SECTION 1 F u nction 41 Determining Widths of Sealant Joints Calculations of expansion joint intervals and sealant joint widths are interdependent. The width of a sealant joint should be determined by the designer of the building, the detailer, the specifications writer, the suppliers of the components or materials on either side of the joint, and the structural engineer.

Now air can pass in and out of the joint, but it can no longer pass through it. If a sudden gust of wind raises the pressure on the outside of the wall, air will be forced into the open interior of the joint by the increased external pressure. After only a very small amount of air has moved into the joint, however, the air pressure inside the joint will equal the air pressure outside, and air movement will cease. Because the two air pressures are equal, there is no energy available to pump water, so water will not penetrate past the joint.

2. If the sealant joint is too narrow, normal amounts of movement between the adjoining components can overstretch the sealant and tear it. This can also happen if the sealant joint is too shallow in proportion to its width. 3. If the sealant bead is too deep, stresses in the bead will be excessive, and tearing is likely. 4. Tooling forces the sealant material to fill the joint, assume the desired profile, and adhere to the adjoining components. 36 Pa r t I D E TA I L PAT T E R N S 5 & 6. In a three‐sided sealant joint, bond‐ breaker tape should be applied against the back of the joint to allow for full extension of the sealant bead when the joint opens.
