Elastomeric Sealant

Knauf EcoSeal

EcoSeal from Knauf Insulation. is a water-based elastomeric sealant designed for 1,700-2,200 psi applicagtion, so it aggressively penetrates cracks, seams and joints. The product dries quickly to a flexible but tough film that forms an effective, continuous, and low-cost air barrier in the joints of the building envelope.

 A two-person crew can install EcoSeal in a 2,000 sq. ft home in a about a half a day. On the other hand, spray foam applications require full body protection, usually prohibit simultaneous trade work, and may take more than twice as long.

Based on interviews with environmentally-focused builders, EcoSeal is easy to install, easy to handle, and cleans up easily. “Obviously, we want to give our prospective customers what they want, and, thanks in great part to the EcoSeal System, we’ve been able to position ourselves as serious “green” builders who can meet industry standards – like the HERS efficiency rating system – and do it at a competitive price,”  says Rene Oehlerking, director of marketing for Garbett Homes in Salt Lake City.

In New Mexico, builder Tom Wade of Artistic Homes notes that his crews save time compared to the conventional caulking and foaming they used to do prior to installing the insulation. He also likes that the insulation materials are green and sustainable:  Wade doesn’t use open or closed cell spray foam insulation because of its petroleum base and potential for off-gassing.
