AU-1 Commercial Construction Sealant for Waterproofing
AU-1 is an elastomeric waterproofing sealant that offers superior performance for construction applications. This premium-grade sealant is easy to apply, tool and clean up, saving you time and money on the job.
With impressive adhesion and exceptional UV resistance, AU-1 delivers industry-leading durability for sealing projects. By bonding to substrates at a molecular level, this outdoor waterproof sealant provides unmatched wear resistance, even with years of outdoor exposure. Additionally, AU-1 maintains high plasticity in all climates and resists extreme joint movement.
Compared to other sealants on the market, AU-1 offers the fastest and easiest application and the highest level of durability. AU-1 also supports safer and more environmentally friendly practices because it is plasticizer-free. See the difference in efficiency and longevity with AU-1 as your waterproof sealant for construction.
AU-1 vs. Other Waterproofing Sealants
Polyurethane sealants are one of the most common choices for sealants in construction. While these have long become the standard for sealing applications, they lack in many areas when compared to AU-1. For example, many sealants on the market offer a maximum shelf life of 12 months, and AU-1 lasts for two years when unopened and stored properly. Other sealants often use plasticizers and volatile organic compounds (VOC) that make them unsafe for long-term exposure.
Qualities that set AU-1 apart include:
- Easy soap and water cleanup — no xylene or special removers required
- Strike flat with no additional tooling requirements
- No mixing required, reducing setup time
- Faster application with 60-minute tack-free time and 15-minute tool time
- Paintable in six to eight hours after application
- Pails are resealable and reusable
- Passes ASTM C-1519
- Does not expose substrate due to plasticizer migration, which can lead to mold or mildew
- Offers maximum joint width of 2 inches
- No priming required for most substrates
The difference is clear. AU-1 is easier to use, safer and longer-lasting than other waterproofing sealants on the market. When you switch to AU-1, your project's quality increases significantly with less required labor.
