Acrylic Latex Sealant
A Common Product profile (CP) is a type of data record originally developed as part of a collaboration called the Quartz Project. The profiles are not specific to any manufacturer, but list the substances that are most commonly present in a product type. The CPs include a general description of the product type, a list of the most common substances serving each function in the product, and the health hazards associated with these substances. See the CP methodology here for more information.
This CP presents research done by Healthy Building Network alone following the completion of the Quartz effort.Representative Manufacturers
Waterborne acrylic latex sealants have replaced solvent-based acrylic sealants for many exterior and interior applications, including sealing window and door gaps, trim, tops and bottoms of wall plates, penetrations, and electrical boxes. Many are available with flame spread ratings ≤ 25. These sealants cure by the evaporation of water. Acrylic latex sealants are customizable and adaptable to green chemistry solutions. Benzoate plasticizers, for example, have largely (but not entirely) replaced phthlalates.
This information reflects our best understanding of product composition in 2016.
