Sealants for sustainable development

The Global Warming Potential and energy impact to manufacture the sealants for a building is less than 2% of the cumulative savings potential for a 20-year lifespan. 

  • The energy efficiency of buildings is a major topic in sustainable development. The tightness of a building envelope is of great importance for achieving a low energy rating.
  • Joint sealants are the technical solution to provide the necessary tightness under any environmental and load conditions.
  • Elastic joint sealants can accommodate thermal and structural movements while maintaining the adhesion of the adjacent building elements.
