Before having a conversation with someone about a specific topic, you really should know the subject matter, the definitions and terminology related to the topics being discussed. Talking about sealants and caulking is no different. In the coming blogs, we will be chatting about many different topics with regards to sealants, this thing we are calling caulking 101. This blog post is the prerequisite for those conversations.
Caulks, sealants, adhesives-what are the differences?
Caulk is a type of sealant that has less movement or flexibility to other sealants. It’s often used as a cosmetic solution instead of a true “keep things out of a joint” product. To caulk or caulking can also be used as a verb, the application of a sealant.
