Titebond® developed a sealant that can maintain its adhesion while providing 100% joint movement. 

DuraMaster is the first water-based elastomeric sealant that is resilient enough to maintain its hold even with high amounts of movement. Joining the long list of Titebond’s family of innovative products, DuraMaster can manage 100% expansion and 50% contraction, making it the first sealant with 100% joint movement capability while maintaining adhesion.  

Typical elastomeric sealants are developed to handle movement of 25% of the original joint size and are rated Class 25 – the minimum rating for handling a moderate amount of movement. Movement occurs with expansion and contraction of building materials due to temperature changes, settling, seismic events and wind. DuraMaster performs four times better than Class 25 sealants and can handle everything from moderate to maximum movement, ensuring joint durability under the toughest conditions. (DuraMaster clear formulation is Class 25.) 

This product has the highest ASTM C-920 sealant rating, Class 100/50, indicating that it can handle 100% joint movement. Meeting the Class 100/50 specification establishes DuraMaster as the ultimate water-based elastomeric sealant, with proven superior performance features to meet even the toughest of homeowner’s demands for lasting durability. 

It stays permanently flexible and is crackproof, ensuring that the sealant expands and contracts with temperatures changes. Like all Titebond construction adhesives and sealants, DuraMaster is developed first and foremost for pro use, including special packaging features such as the removable nozzle. 

You can use DuraMaster for interior and exterior applications, such as windows, doors, trim and siding. It offers superior adhesion to most common building materials including: vinyl, metal, glass, wood, PVC, concrete, aluminum and all types of siding. This advanced sealant will span even large gaps, up to two inches wide. 

“We are extremely excited to offer DuraMaster,” said Mark Schroeder, Titebond’s vice president of marketing. “It takes its place among our most outstanding products; it is the ultimate sealant in its product category. We’re proud of that and of our ability to give construction pros the ideal sealant to get the job done, faster and better.”
