The two basic types of exterior sealants are urethane and silicone. Silicone sealants are more widely used today because of performance demands related to UV rays and thermal effects. It is imperative to test a sealant for compatibility and adhesion with all substraits prior to being applied. Application should be in strict accordance with manufacturers' recommendations.
For new construction or building renovation, silicone sealants from Dow Corning work because they solve unique structural glazing and weatherproofing challenges, protect buildings typically three times longer than organic materials, perform with successful track records in diverse applications, provide outstanding life cycle value, improve productivity, reduce waste and extend building life.
