Numerous applications come under the construct of mastic joint waterproofing, sealing, and fire-stopping. Contractors normally do a brief site visit to observe and determine the most suitable procedure, materials, and time-frame necessary to finish the project.
Mastic Sealants can be applied outdoors as well, since it is waterproof, resistant to both high and low temperatures, and frequently includes ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors to make sure that the sun does not decrease its function. In addition, it works well with most metals, unlike the other types of sealants.
But despite the many positive feedbacks of mastic sealants, there are still some drawbacks to this material. For instance; though it stays quite flexible, it should not be applied to joints that will be frequently moved. The mastic coating will normally stay put through some amount of pressure, but it is not meant for intense joint movement. Thick applications are also preferred for mastic sealants, such as in areas with large cracks and gaps, rather than in thinner areas.
One more important thing to remember, mastic sealants usually lasts for around five years, so it should be checked from time to time to ensure that it is most effective.
