Understanding Sealants and Their Impact on a Residential Structure in 2021 Using an LCA (Print Course)
It makes sense that sealing your windows and doors saves energy, but have you ever wondered by how much? A life cycle assessment was conducted for a polyurethane sealant on a residential structure in Pittsburgh, PA. This course will explain types of sealants and how they are used on a residential structure, how life cycles are assessed, the methodology of this study, as well as results and conclusions.
This course will identify proper and safe joint sealant application procedures that can be specified for use in various applications. In addition, the course will provide information to assist you in recognizing and understanding common causes of sealant problems. Finally, the course will provide you with information to enable you to compare and contrast different sealant types.
The course will be broken into four parts: Part 1 - Sealant Fundamentals; Part 2 - Joint Design; Part 3 - Sealant Installation; and, Part 4 - Sealant Types and Uses.
