What are joint sealants?

Joint sealants are materials used to seal joints and gaps in construction projects, providing a flexible and waterproof barrier that accommodates movement and prevents the ingress of elements like water, air, and chemicals.

Why are sealants important in construction?

Sealants are crucial in construction for ensuring structural integrity, preventing water damage, and maintaining energy efficiency by sealing off air leaks. They also enhance the aesthetic appearance by providing a clean, finished look to joints.

What types of sealants are typically used in construction?

The most common types include polysulphide, polyurethane (PU), silicone, and acrylic sealants. Each type has specific properties suited for different applications.

What is a polysulphide sealant?

Polysulphide sealant is a type of elastomeric sealant with excellent chemical and water resistance, making it ideal for sealing joints in areas exposed to harsh conditions.

What is PU sealant and where is it used?

PU (polyurethane) sealant is a versatile sealant known for its strength, flexibility, and resistance to weathering. It is commonly used in construction for sealing expansion joints, cracks, and gaps in buildings and other structures.

Can I use the same sealant for all types of joints?

No, different joints and materials require specific types of sealants based on movement, exposure, and compatibility. For example, polysulphide sealants are preferred for joints with high movement or exposure to chemicals, while PU sealants are better for areas needing high durability and strength.
