Event Details

Co-located with the 2023 Convention & EXPO is a two day Caulks & Sealants Short Course. that takes place April 17-18, 2023.


Gain a Better Understanding of the Functions and Applications of Caulks and Sealants

Caulks and sealants are primarily used in building, construction and transportation to bond surfaces together, fill gaps and serve as a physical barrier. Due to their use in bonding substrates with differing coefficients of thermal expansion, sealants are formulated to have higher elongation and paste like viscosities to allow for gap filling applications. Taught by industry experts, ASC's technical short course will help you gain a better understanding of the functions and applications of caulks and sealants.

NOTE: Short course participants are invited to join the industry at the Welcome Reception Monday evening April 17th and the EXPO on Tuesday night to network with the industry.
