WHAT IS A SILICONE SEALANT?
Silicone sealants are used to seal joints in a wide variety of construction applications. Sikasil® is Sika’s line of professional-grade silicone sealants that are ideal for applications including glass-to-glass and glass-to-metal surfaces. Silicone sealants are able to bond to most surfaces, particularly porous substrates such as concrete and masonry. These sealants have excellent adhesion to glass including conditions where the sealant is subjected to UV radiation at the bond line, color retention and applications with unusually high temperatures.

WHY IS JOINT SEALING IMPORTANT?
The joint is where the different building elements and materials meet. A joint is where two components meet and occur mainly within segments of construction or at a part of an interface between two variants. Joint sealing facilitates construction as many components are made of different materials that need a joint to allow for movement of the structure but must keep water, air, heat cold and vapor-tight seal. As the most vulnerable part of a structure, the joint needs the best product to protect the structure from the environmental elements and only correctly specified and professionally applied high-quality joint sealants will manage to keep the building or structure sustainably airtight during its lifespan.
