What is Acrylic Sealant?

Acrylic sealants, also referred to as latex or silicone-modified acrylics, are water-based sealants that cure to a flexible, durable strip upon exposure to air. They contain acrylic polymer emulsions as the base ingredient along with additives like silicone, fillers, and colorants.


   


Key Properties:

Flexibility - Ability to stretch and compress with joints over long term

Adhesion - Form strong bonds to porous and non-porous surfaces

Paintability - Compatible with all water and oil-based paint coatings

Low Shrinkage - Will not crack or peel away from substrate

Easy Application - Smooth consistency, water clean-up


Application Best Practices:

Proper application technique is important when working with acrylic sealants. First, thoroughly clean and prepare the substrate surface to ensure adhesion. Cut the nozzle tip to desired bead size and load the cartridge into a caulking gun. Apply steady pressure, pushing the sealant bead deep into the seam or crack you are sealing and tool as needed with a putty knife or finger. Allow a curing time of 24 hours before exposing the seal to rain or mechanical stresses. Acrylic sealants can be painted over after only 1-2 hours of drying time.
