ABSTRACT:

A basic understanding of how sealants work, how they should be installed and why, and a guide to potential failures.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. The basic chemical make-up of common sealant types on the market, and why this is important to you.
  2. A sealants’ goal in life, what they do, why they can do it, things that they cannot do, and why they fail.
  3. Important sealant properties and why you should be aware of these – including potential aesthetic changes in substrates and sealants.
  4. The Big Six of Sealant Installation (clean, prime, back, shoot, tool, and quality control) and why you should care.

SPEAKER BIO:

After thirty-four (34) years at a major Silicone Sealant company, Dave Kimball retired five (5) years ago, and started anew with PROSOCO, Inc., as a Senior Technical Specialist in the Building Envelop Group, covering the North Atlantic and Mid-West Regions from his office in Brooklyn, NY.  While Dave spent years, living in many different parts of the country, primarily in a Technical Service role, working on Weatherseal, Structural Glazing, and exterior coatings applications, the unique challenge that rough opening preparation and Air and Vapor Barriers brings is inspiring.  Thank you for the opportunity to have a discussion today.
