  • Publication number: 20170205328
    Abstract: Disclosed are a system and method for measuring the permeability of a material. A test chamber includes first and second sides, separated by a material undergoing testing. A blower applies pressurized air to the first side of the chamber, air permeating through the material enters the second side of the chamber where the volume of the permeated air is measured by an air volume measuring device. The measuring device includes first and second float boxes, each suspended in a water tank so that a captured volume of air raises the float box within the water tank. With the volume of air permeated and the elapsed time, the permeability of the material can be calculated. In alternative embodiments additional environmental conditions are introduced, including heat, cooling, and water spray. Field test configurations of the test system are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20160333218
    Abstract: An environmental barrier composition and method for forming a structural barrier system to seal structural openings such as doors and windows is provided. The composition includes a liquid rosin that is silyl-terminated polyether, a filler material, and a curing catalyst. The method includes applying the composition to a prepared through-hole in combination with flashing material at least along a bottom surface of the through-hole and installation of a window or door into the prepared through-hole to form a barrier system in which a continuous film can be easily inspected, is waterproof, meet air barrier requirements of ASTM E2178, has elastomeric properties, allows substrate expansion, contraction, and movement, does not shrink or lose volume as it cures, and cures rapidly with sufficient adhesion to transition flashing to incorporate into a designed drainage plane and allow integration of a continuous air barrier system where the barrier is at least semi-vapor-permeable.
