Joint sealants are a building’s first line of defense against moisture intrusion. They create a crucial weath- erproof seal and lasting strong bond between surfaces while accommodating differential movement between dissimilar substrates. Corrosion and spalled concrete is caused by dissimilar metals in balconies, soluble chlorides from sea air, cast chlorides from errant construction practices, improper waterproofing and sealant details, and insuffi- cient cover over steel reinforcing.
