SealTestsTM: a Modern Solution for Building Sealant Failures


New Technology Identifies Sealant Failures and Helps Prevent Mold Problems

A revolutionary new technique to identify sealant failures on building exteriors has been introduced by Global Prevention Services of Scottsdale, Arizona. Sealant failures can lead to energy loss, uncomfortable interior conditions, water damage and subsequent mold growth in indoor environments if left unchecked.

The majority of modern commercial buildings employ design techniques that utilize exterior walls as non-structural (non-load supporting) “skins”. This skin is functionally designed to control and limit air and water passage. Connecting each piece of the skin is a flexible seal designed to prevent the free passage of air and water. Most of these buildings are sealed with hand-applied sealants. It is almost impossible to install all the sealants perfectly and imperfect building seals allow air and water to enter and escape from buildings.

Modern technologies have allowed for the development of SealTestsTM. This innovative new instrumentation and sealant testing technology allows for a cost effective scientific solution to identify sealant failures. The same cutting edge expertise has produced a test guide that is currently under development by ASTM that will address the SealTests™ non-destructive testing system which far surpasses the current published standard.

The end result of sealant failure can lead to Sick Building Syndrome. Lawsuits related to Sick Building Syndrome in the United States have already exceeded the total cost of all asbestos abatement and litigation, and continues to be a major concern.

“Proactive solutions to identify sealant failures in modern buildings are now available to property managers and building owners across the country,” reported Michael Himelfarb, CEO of Global Prevention Services. Global Prevention Services has recently signed an exclusive agreement to utilize SealTestsTM technologies for its locations across the country.
