Few Recent Developments
Definition - Latex sealant is widely used in different industries such as automotive, construction, aerospace, and other. It offers several properties such as corrosion resistance, good adhesion, and insolubility, among others. Latex sealants are used to create highly durable water barrier on roofing, balconies, decks, and lanais. In addition, it is used to fill the small gaps between the wood surfaces.
Latex sealant is used for connecting various materials and parts. It is synthetic semi-solid material which offers prevention from liquid leakage. The sealants are used for different purposes such as automobile sealers, insulated glass sealers, construction sealers, and airport runway sealers, among others. Latex sealant is referred as an adhesive in the liquid form. It is easy to apply in joining the different surfaces. In addition, there is no need of any production equipment or machineries for the installation of latex sealant. Furthermore, it has a wide range of applications in the construction sector.
Rising use of latex sealant across the construction industry
Latex sealant is water-based sealant, thus used for residential construction and buildings. It is easy to apply and has the capability to join different surfaces. Moreover, it offers some beneficial functions such as resistance from UV rays and humidity. Latex sealants are easy to clean up, cost-effective, and paintable construction sealants. In addition, it is used for interior application, owing to their short-service life. These are the major factors to accelerate the global latex sealant market growth.
Technological advancements and architectural innovation
Airports and mining facilities, residential areas, and transportation routes are coming across the advance technological transformation to enhance the standards. Latex sealants helps to improve the standards of residential and commercial buildings as it is used for blocking dust, heat, and sound transmission. In addition, latex sealant helps to maintain the sealing properties during their lifespan. Thus, booming demand for latex sealant is expected to witness lucrative opportunities across the latex sealant market players.
Availability of alternative for latex sealants
The substitute available for latex sealants are listed such as polyurethane polyisobutylenes, silicone, polysulfide, acrylic, and butyl sealants. Silicone sealants are more flexible and it has longer lifecycle. Furthermore, increasing demand for silicone sealants, owing to their properties such as good adhesion, thermal resistance, and dynamic movement capability is hampering the global latex sealant market growth. On the other hand, polyisobutylenes sealant is used as primary sealers in insulating glazing units.
