Sealant Manufacturers produce specialized adhesives and sealants for use in construction, aerospace, industrial and marine environments. They manufacture a wide variety of products that can withstand different types of temperatures, weather conditions and environments, such as ice, water, oil and petroleum. They can also be used in various types of joints and materials, such as glass, aluminum, ceramics, plastics, fiberglass and wood. The type of sealant that is required for a specific job depends on the environment, surface properties and joint design. When choosing a sealant, it is important to consider factors like chemical resistance, elongation and compressive strength.
Adhesives and sealants are made from a range of polymers and compounds that can be combined to produce a variety of results. These include silicone, acrylic, urethane, epoxy and polysulfides. Each polymer can have different characteristics, such as viscosity, ductility and strength. Several other variables can affect the performance of a sealant, such as its temperature and humidity resistance. A sealant’s ability to bond to a substrate is also critical to its success.
The physical and chemical properties of a sealant can be determined by testing, which is usually performed at the manufacturers’ laboratories. The test results can help determine whether a particular product is suitable for a specific application. These tests may include measuring its compressive strength, elongation, tensile strength, water vapour resistance and durability.
A sealant can also be tested for its base polymer properties with respect to its weatherability. This can be useful to know if the sealant is suitable for an application, such as a food processing area or clean room. For example, the sealant might need to be resistant to moisture in order to meet USDA or FDA requirements.
