Sealants are substances prepared from various chemicals to make surfaces airtight and watertight to prevent the escape of solids, gases and liquids. Due to their properties of superior adhesion, corrosion resistance and insolubility, sealants are also being increasingly used in acoustical and thermal applications in construction, packaging, woodworking and transportation.

Sealants are soft, pliable materials, used to seal cracks in joints where structural strength is not required. Sealant, initially fluid or semi-fluid, placed between two opposing solid materials, becomes solid itself (by solvent evaporation or chemical reaction), bonds to the surface it is applied to and accommodates joint movement. It prevents excessive absorption of adhesive or penetration of liquid or gaseous substances. A sealant has the adhesive and cohesive properties to form a seal and is used to create an impenetrable barrier to gas or moisture.
