Empire State Building Weathersealing

New York, NY

When New York’s world-famous Empire State Building was in need of weathersealing, its owners turned to Garvin Construction Products—and GE Sealants.

Because this iconic landmark is made from natural stone, it was critical that a non-staining sealant be used. For this hallmark project, which was completed in 2009, GE SCS9000 SilPruf* NB was used for joint sealant installation and window repairs. GE weatherseal products provide the two most critical attributes of effective weathersealing products: long-term efficacy in sealing out air and water and the ability to withstand weather and atmospheric conditions without degradation.

During this project, SCS9000 withstood a set of brutal tests simulating gale-force winds and torrential rains, demonstrating the stability of the products.
