BETHESDA, Md. — The Adhesive and Sealant Council, Inc. (ASC), has developed a Joint Sealants resource page for the new online Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG). Developed by the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS), the WBDG is a Web-based portal designed to provide practitioners with one-stop access to current information on a range of federal building-related guidance and criteria.

The ASC-developed Joint Sealants resource page discusses a number of topics, including sealant types, applications, installation recommendations, and ASTM codes and standards. Four ASC member companies were instrumental in the development of the tutorial: DAP Inc. (Division of RPM); Dow Corning Corp.; Foamseal/Novagard Inc.; and Sika Corp.

The Joint Sealants resource page is available on the ASC’s Web site at http://www.ascouncil.org/onlineresources and on the WBDG’s Web site at http://www.wbdg.org/design.
