conform to the ASTM specifications for the particular location in which the sealant is being
replaced. For pavements on naval facilities, the joint sealant must conform to NFGS-02982;
however, silicone sealants may be used in lieu of materials called for in ETL 94-9
16.8. Placing Sealant. Placement of the sealant is similar to that of crack sealants in that the
sealant should be placed from the bottom up and in a smooth stroke from the beginning to the
end of the joint or crack, if practical. For details on sealing of joints, refer to the section on crack
sealing as this is analogous to sealing joints. In addition, procedures for sealing joints are given
in References 1.3.4. through 1.3.8.
16.9. Cleanup. After the repair is complete, all equipment should be cleaned, lubricated if
necessary, and properly stored until needed for the next repair operation.
