Greater life cycle savings and value

“Lifecycle savings” is the amount of money you save over the performance life of a material. It includes not only the purchase price of the product, but also the cost to apply it, to maintain it over time, and to replace it when it fails.

Silicones last longer than many organic materials. So the things they protect, lubricate, and hold together perform better and last longer, too. This results in:

  • Fewer productivity-robbing equipment breakdowns
  • Fewer costly renovations or replacements
  • Less waste sent to landfills
  • Less drain on our natural resources
  • Happier, more loyal consumers
  • A more sustainable society

Did you know ... silicone architectural coatings typically last twice as long as acrylic coatings, and silicone building sealants typically last three times as long as urethane sealants!
