Air leakage, or infiltration, occurs when outside air enters a house uncontrollably through cracks and openings. Properly air sealing can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs, improve building durability, and create a healthier indoor environment.

Techsolute offers caulks and sealants that are high performance, low odor, paintable and easy to use and clean up. They are highly effective in extreme temperatures and can be applied in a wide range of environmental conditions. They are formulated to create a weather tight seal that lasts for years to come, saving you time and money.

While there are many areas in the home to protect from air leaks, sealing air Leaks around windows and doors will target high energy savings potential. Air can escape through tiny holes that can add up to the energy loss of a door standing wide open for hours. In fact, by sealing these two key areas in your home, you can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs.

Some Tips:

  • Interior gaps and cracks in walls should be filled with paintable sealants (acrylic, polyurethane or MS polymers) to create a perfect aesthetical finish. Silicone sealants are not paintable and therefore are not suitable for there applications.
  • Using sanitary anti-fungal sealants instead of the widely used white cement in sanitary applications has a number of advantages like 100% waterproof, no cracks, no discoloring, flexible and anti-fungal and mould resistant properties and most importantly, giving an aesthetical value to your bathroom or kitchen.
