Adhesives, Caulks and Sealants

Protect your adhesives, caulks and sealants from mold, mildew and bacteria

Adhesives, Caulks and Sealants

Adhesives, caulks and sealants, particularly water-based formulations and silicone products, are susceptible to microbial contamination, which can lead to spoilage and defacement or reduce the life of your product.

Mold or mildew growth in the home is not just unsightly, it is also associated with serious health risks. Especially in locations with high moisture content like bathrooms or kitchens, it is vital to protect your product from microbial growth.

Bacterial and fungal growth can also lead to spoilage during manufacturing, shipping and storage. The right in-can (wet-state) preservation can help to prevent visible contamination, unpleasant odors, pH or viscosity changes, or other microbial degradation.

We offer a range of highly effective broad-spectrum solutions to protect adhesives, caulks and sealants from microbial contamination.

Formaldehyde is a ubiquitous material in our environment. Currently there is no accepted regulatory or industry definition of "Formaldehyde-Free." Therefore, we purposely refrain from using the term "Formaldehyde-Free." However, we do not intentionally add Formaldehyde or Formaldehyde generators to this product.
