Joint sealants are used to seal joints and voids between two or more substrates (building materials or layers of building materials). They are an essential component of building design and construction.
The main purpose of sealants is to prevent moisture, air, and other environmental elements from exiting or entering a structure. Unlike caulking, sealants can accommodate limited movement of the substrates.
Sealants are used for a variety of commercial and residential applications. They are available in a wide range of elasticities and materials to fit specific construction needs. Some common sealants include urethane, butyl, acrylic, silicone, and other polymeric types.
New Construction & Maintenance
In new construction projects, joint sealants normally fill the joints between masonry and non-masonry materials. These areas can include masonry expansion joints and areas around doors and penetrations.
