Where is the Limit?
High performance sealants that fulfill the current demands for outdoor service life have been developed and are commercially available. In the market some of these high performance materials are currently replacing the standard grades, essentially becoming the new standard grades. The next generation of high weatherability sealants is expected to expand the limit of weatherability even further.
New high performance grades will be based on more expensive raw materials, such as high grade binders, which means that new high weatherability sealants will be at the higher end of the price scale. Along with this, further improvements of workability and ease of application are to be expected.
