SEALANTS | CAULKING

A sealants solution provides simple precautionary measures to ensure that buildings are sealed and long lasting. Any horizontal or vertical surface including parking lots, driveways, commercial floors, precast joints, CMU  joints, and dissimilar material joints can be sealed.  

When it comes to weather proofing the joints between precast concrete panels, the last thing any contractor or building owner wants is sealant failure. They want long lasting protection against the weather and freedom from callbacks.

The difference between success and failure in panel joint sealing usually hinges on a few simple precautionary measures. First and foremost, a clean and dry joint needs to be the starting point. Secondly, using a few criteria such as exposure type for product selection such as urethane or silicone. Finally, proper material installation of sealant components to ensure a sealed joint that allows proper movement for expansion and contraction.
