Statically Strained Samples

The Sealant A samples that were statically strained in both compression and tension during exposure also exhibited a change in dimensions consistent with the results from the dynamically strained Sealant A samples. The degree of dimensional change in both tension and compression is proportional to the extent of the static strain as shown in Fig. 7 (before treatment). Again, these samples were removed from exposure and forced back into the pre-exposure
