What Are Sealants in Construction?
Sealants are materials that seal gaps, joints, and interfaces between building components. Sealants are typically flexible and capable of forming a barrier against air, water, moisture, dust, noise, and other unwanted elements. Sealants are used to ensure weatherproofing, waterproofing, sound insulation, fire resistance, and overall building envelope protection.
Sealants come in different formulations, such as silicone, polyurethane, acrylic, and hybrid sealants, each with specific properties suitable for different applications.
What Are Adhesives in Construction?
Adhesives are substances used to bond or join materials together in construction. This product creates a strong and durable connection between surfaces, providing structural integrity and enhancing the overall strength of the construction.
Adhesives can be used for various applications, including bonding materials like wood, metal, glass, plastic, and composite materials. Adhesives come in different types, such as epoxy, polyurethane, acrylic, and cyanoacrylate adhesives, each with specific characteristics suitable for different bonding requirements.
Benefits of Sealants and Adhesives in Construction
Both sealants and adhesives play critical roles in construction, providing essential functions such as sealing gaps, joints, and interfaces and creating strong bonds between materials.
