Caulks and sealants are primarily used in building construction and transportation to bond surfaces together, fill gaps and serve as a physical barrier. Due to their use in bonding substrates with differing coefficients of thermal expansion, sealants are formulated to have higher elongation and paste-like viscosities to allow for gap filling applications. Sealants offer important performance properties, providing many advantages to modern design. Putties and caulks serve another function - to take up space and fill voids. Taught by industry experts, ASC's two-day, technical short course will help you gain a better understanding of the functions and applications of caulks and sealants.
