There’s nothing like distinguishing your building with an elegant awning only to have grimy stains develop when water leaks between the face of your building and the awning mount. This can be permanently avoided by simply mounting the awning–fixed or retractable–to the building over a gasket of UST Awning & Sign Sealant from EMSEAL.
EMSEAL UST Awning/Sign Sealant Tape is a preformed expanding tape seal. UST is made of a resilient cellular foam infused with a hydrophobic, modified- acrylic, liquid adhesive sealant which is then compressed to a sealing density level appropriate to the application. The result is a hybrid sealant that features the best characteristics of foam and liquid sealants while eliminating their respective weaknesses.
UST compresses uniformly without overspill to provide a lasting seal. UST is available in a wide variety of configurations. It is odorless, clean handling, UV stable, non-staining, and highly versatile.
Users determine the size of UST suited to their specific application and performance needs.
Typically, higher compression levels are required for watertightness in standing water or water run-off applications; lower compression can be used, for example, in drier applications (see compression chart below).
UST replaces and outperforms liquid and butyl-tape sealants as well as closed cell and unimpregnated open-cell foam closures.
EMSEAL UST is packaged precompressed in rolls. The material contains a pressure sensitive mounting-adhesive on one face to facilitate installation.
