Building envelopes are typically a series of materials separating the building interior climate from the exterior. All these materials must be connected from wall to roof, and wall to floor/foundation.
RCI, an international association of building envelope consultants, will hold its 32nd International Convention and Trade Show at the Anaheim Convention Center in California from March 16 to 21. More than 1300 people are expected to attend.
When it comes to a leak-free building, the sealants are the backbone of the whole cladding system. Even the best exterior aluminum, masonry, glass, steel, or exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS) are only as good as the sealants used to weatherproof the joints, penetrations, and transitions.
