Any commercial property requires sealants to protect against the elements and improve structural integrity. 

Typically, sealants are used for different purposes, including connecting panels, windows, doors, and partitions. 

Not all sealants are the same, and you want to use the right one to provide the maximum amount of strength. Otherwise, you could have issues from the wind and rain when creating an impermeable barrier. Here are the different commercial sealants and the choices you can make to provide the highest protection levels. 

Traditional Solutions 

The traditional solutions that most people assume work as the best commercial sealants in West Palm Beach are caulking and putties. Since the 1950s, these materials were common in sealing metals, glass, wood, and concrete because of the linseed oil and tar derivates. 

However, these solutions were not effective and cracked as the weather took a toll on the sealant. You usually use these traditional solutions as a last resort and realize that you will be replacing the seals in the future. 

We recommend using caulking and putties only in certain situations, such as indoor settings. These solutions work better than others in these environments and last longer without the constant pressure from the elements. 

A-1 Tropic Painting & Waterproofing is your expert on commercial sealants in West Palm Beach. We can replace, repair, and strengthen any surface to reverse the damage and prevent things from becoming worse. 


Synthetics is one of the most durable and flexible sealants available that offers maximum protection. These solutions have high durability and can withstand the rigors of exposure to the environment. 

Synthetics use different polymers, including polybutene, polyisobutylene, and butyle rubber to give you long lasting solutions. 

Polybutene is a compound that blends with the environment and connects with the molecules in it. We use this to make strong sealants on walls, metal joints, and increase the elasticity of the seal.   

Polyisobutylene is thicker and lasts longer thanks to the unique mix of molecules that bind to the surface. 

Butyl rubber is strong enough to withstand the pressure from gases, the weather conditions, and is resistant to oxygen. The secret is in the resins, hydrocarbons, and hydrogen rosin that offer extra strength. 

We use these solutions to provide effective sealants against the elements and give your property extra protection.

Acrylic Sealants 

Acrylic is another excellent sealant that offers more protection and is divided into the emulsion and solvent-based solutions. 

Emulsion is great at absorbing into the molecules of different materials including concrete, wood, plaster, metal, and glass. These solutions have lower amounts of shrinkage when drying and will last for up to 15 years. You will see lower amounts of discoloration from exposure to the UV rays of the sun. 

These solvents offer excellent adhesion to concrete, wood, steel, and aluminum to give you even more protection. These solutions are weather resistant and not affected by the UV rays from the sun. We use acrylic solvents for siding, wall joints, metal to concrete joints, and connecting wood to metal. 

The solvents use a polymer base with an 80% solid acrylic dissolution that adds to the weight by 50%. The increased weight reduces any possible shrinkage when drying, and it gives you the maximum amount of protection. 

We recommend using these solutions on any commercial project in conjunction with the others we mentioned previously. Our goal is to use all of them to give you the maximum amount of protection for your commercial property.
