GE Construction Sealants
100% Silicone Air & Water Barrier

A 100% silicone Air & Water Barrier (AWB) system is an enduring option for an energy efficient and watertight barrier around the building envelope. A complete silicone system eliminates any adhesion issue you might encounter at transitions between silicone and dissimilar materials. Without proper adhesion and compatibility, leakage, higher HVAC costs, water damage and energy inefficiency could ensue.

Silicone has inherent properties that make it an excellent long-term energy efficient solution for air barriers:

  • Durable & airtight
  • UV/Weather resistance of walls while awaiting cladding (20+ years)
  • Cold weather application
  • Permanent flexibility
  • Primerless adhesion to conventional substrates
AWB systems control the flow of air and water into the building envelope and create a contiguous barrier to reduce energy consumption in a building by up to an estimated 35%1. AWB systems can also contribute to LEED certification, temperature control inside the building, and can aid in the prevention of mold and mildew from unwanted water entering the building.

GE SEC2500 SilShield* AWB

SEC2500 SilShield AWB is a 100% silicone liquid coating. It is easily sprayed, rolled or brushed with commonly used coating equipment. It can be easily applied in freezing temperatures and will not require indoor storage or heating for proper application.

GE UST2200* UltraSpan

UST2200 UltraSpan is a 100% silicone heat-cured rubber for use in transitioning and detailing across gaps and expansion joints, and for use in a multitude of applications around penetrations and frames. UST2200 is translucent for visual verification of sealant continuity at transition locations. Packaged in rolls, the material can be easily cut to accommodate transition configurations or conditions.

GE SilPruf*

The GE SilPruf line of 100% silicone sealant/adhesives provides the two most critical attributes of effective weathersealing products: long-term efficacy in sealing out air and water, and the ability to withstand weather and atmospheric conditions without degradation. Utilized for joints, seams, gaps and splices, GE SilPruf products are compatible with UST2200 transition strip and SEC2500 AWB coating.

GE SilPruf products include

SCS2000 SilPruf
SCS9000 SilPruf NB
