Sealants have been utilized for various purposes for a long time now. Construction sealants are essentially a high performance compound which has expensive ingredients, offers excellent weathering and UV resistance, little shrinkage and provides long service life cycles i.e. 10-20 years. Sealants are commonly known as caulking in the construction industry and are used to block heat, sound, dust and fluid with apertures in building structures. Constructions sealants offer flexibility, reliability and water proofing joints to a broad range of applications, such as glazing, roofing, flooring, and sanitary, etc. Also, they provide value added benefits in terms of protection from environmental threats, seepage and leakage as well as improved performance and greater durability. Construction sealants can also provide thermal and acoustic insulation and can also be utilized as fire barriers. Bitumen and Asphalt are the naturally occurring construction sealants and have been utilized as sealant for many centuries.
There are various types of construction sealants available in the market which include silicone- and polyurethane-based sealants, polysulfide, acrylic latex, synthetic rubber and bituminous sealants, etc. Polyurethane-based sealants are the most widely utilized sealants across the globe owing to their various advantages, such as high resistance to UV, temperature ratings, etc. Further, polyurethane creates an elastic and tough seal on various materials, such as wood, masonry, metals etc.
