Residential Window Sealant Helps Keep Wind and Water Out
A durable, flexible seal around windows and doors helps prevent water and air intrusion, and makes homes more durable and energy efficient.
DuPont™ Residential Sealant is a durable, highly flexible window sealant for use in general residential construction. It is formulated to bond well with DuPont™ Tyvek®, weather barriers, and other DuPont construction products, as well as most common building materials.
As an integral part of a complete building envelope system, DuPont™ Residential Sealant helps control both air and water intrusion, to help make homes more comfortable, prevent water damage, and reduce heating and cooling costs.
How It Works
DuPont™ Residential Sealant is a modified urethane acrylic window sealant that is highly durable and flexible, for easy installation around windows and doors, in both new construction and restoration projects.
It bonds with a wide range of DuPont materials, to help create an elastomeric, protective barrier against moisture infiltration and contribute to building airtightness. It also provides excellent bonding with a range of building substrates, including:
- Fiber Cement Siding
- Masonry, Brick and CMU
