Elastomeric Joint Sealants are cold-applied, single- or multi-component elastomeric materials that are used to seal, caulk, or glaze buildings, plazas, decks for vehicular or pedestrian use, and other types of construction besides pavements and bridges on highways and airfields.
The main role of a joint sealant is to keep water, soil, and garbage out of the joint. Sealants are relatively soft and flexible materials, typically composed of polyurethane, silicone, or acrylic, and designed to expand and contract with the joint.
A sealant-filled joint will deflect when hard-wheeled vehicles, carts, and pallet jacks pass over it, leaving the edges of the joint unprotected. resulting in spalling and cracking at the edge.
Therefore, the best application of joint sealants in an industrial floor is to fill isolation joints at walls, columns, and under racks that are not subject to traffic.
A semi-rigid joint filler should be used to fill industrial floor joints that are frequently used by heavy and/or hard-wheeled vehicles. Polyurea or epoxy are the two types of materials.
When cutting holes in the concrete floor’s surface caused continuity to be disrupted, semi-rigid joint fillers restore it. Joint fillers protect joint edges from damage caused by heavy loads and hard wheel impacts because they are relatively rigid.
When these joints are filled, wheels can move across them like they were on a continuous concrete surface while the joints continue to relieve stress in the slab.
The Global Elastomeric Joint Sealants market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
From its Master Seal line of waterproofing, deck membrane, and sealant products designed to prevent water leaks and moisture intrusion in new and existing structures, BASF has introduced two new sealant products in Australia.
The integrity of a structure is only as good as the sealants used wherever two surfaces are joined. Master Seal joint sealants, which are made with high-performance elastomers, provide excellent weather proofing and protection from the harshest conditions.
Master Seal CR 435 is a two-component, hybrid polyurea sealant that cures chemically and is recommended for active, harsh-environment interior and exterior joints.
The sealant is extremely durable and suitable for areas with a lot of foot traffic thanks to its high resistance to chemicals, puncture and abrasion resistance, insensitivity to moisture during curing, and UV resistance.
MasterSeal NP 430 is a modified silicone joint sealant that cures in the presence of moisture and is extremely elastic. It is suggested for active joints on the outside and inside that require extreme UV resistance and color integrity over time .
It adheres to a wide range of surfaces, including concrete, metal, timber, cement, brick, and plaster, thanks to its modified silicone technology, which ensures high elasticity, movement capability, and adhesion.
These new sealants demonstrate BASF’s ongoing commitment to providing customers in the field with the best solutions through the Master Builders Solutions range.
