As energy costs continue to rise and environmental regulations become more and more prevalent in homebuilding, the demand for an environmentally friendly, high performance sealant has increased. Older technologies, high in solvents, offering only average performance don’t make the cut anymore. Builders are demanding more from their sealant.
Meeting these demands isn’t a simple feat, sealants and adhesives face a complex challenge. Not only must they have improved adhesion, but they must also be more versatile, adhering to more substrates and at more extreme temperatures with lower VOC’s. The list goes on and on.
Premier building Solutions set out to create a product that checks all of these boxes. The result? GenX, Next Generation Sealant Technology.
The new product, GenX, was researched and developed over several years with the aim to create the ultimate, high performance, advanced polymer sealant. It can be applied on a wide range of construction substrates, including fiber cement, cedar, brick, stone, coated aluminum, steel, fiberglass, vinyl, PVC, stucco, EIFS, wood, glass, concrete, masonry, flashing tapes, Kynar® coating – the list goes on and on.
Whatever the application, GenX offers notable benefits over other sealants. The high performance, advanced polymer sealant has maximum durability for use in many interior or exterior conditions. The product’s flex technology allows for ±50% joint movement, providing a flexible, durable bond.
The GenX sealant line includes a portfolio of more than 150 colors, making it simple to match to any substrate – although it can be painted any color just two hours after application. Also, it easily extrudes in temperatures from -40° F to 140°F.
On top of all that, GenX is environmentally friendly too. A low VOC content of 13 g/L ensures that contractors meet green building standards.
GenX, Next Generation Sealant Technology, is offered in 10.1 ounce cartridges and 20 ounce sausages. For more information, visit http://www.xtrabondgenx.com/.
