In a perfect world, we would all build to a standard that did not rely so much on caulking to keep our building assemblies functioning as designed. Since that doesn't seem to be the case very often, it's nice to know the major sealant manufacturers continue their efforts to improve their product lines.

Matt Risinger, from Risinger Homes in Austin, TX, does a great job in this video of covering the features of the new OSI Quad MAX. This product allows for a consistent bead in temperatures from 0 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. It can be applied in all kinds of weather and adheres exceptionally well to wet surfaces. OSI Quad MAX is fully cured in 24 hours and can be painted in just one hour, which means no more trips back to the jobsite to apply that last coat of paint.

Three properties are used to measure any quality sealant: flexibility, adhesion, and durability. This product features 5x stretch as well as 50% joint movement. It also has been engineered to adhere to a larger variety of building materials without the need for a primer. OSI Quad MAX is completely impervious to water and has been designed to hold up to UV far better than other leading brands.

To top it all off, there are more than 4,600 color-match products available. OSI's new Quad MAX is one that you will want to try out on your next jobsite.
