ISEAL EP (Exterior Panel) is a compressed fit extruded silicone gasket system developed specifically for panel technology. ISEAL EP is for above grade exterior wall panel conditions, it provides thermal protection, air & water infiltration protection, and is not susceptible to UV damage.
The system consists of extruded silicone gaskets that are adhered to the substrate/panels with silicone sealant. A proprietary ISEAL EP Exoskeletal 4-way splice is used at all four-way vertical-to-horizontal splices to ensure continuity of performance at splices.

Benefits of the ISeal Exterior Panel System
The ISEAL EP system uses proven silicone materials. Silicone has been used for over 40 years in conjunction with panel products.
Installation Quality Control
The ISEAL EP extrusion is designed with sealant depth gauging tabs, which allow for easy visual confirmation of correct sealant depth and accurate alignment of panels.
The ISEAL EP system, including the exoskeletal 4-way splice has been subjected to rigorous laboratory testing to validate system performance.
With the ISEAL EP system the 4-Way splice joints are installed as the panels are erected, providing completed panel perimeter joints with each installed panel. With traditional sealant/backer rod joints the joints are typically installed after all panels are installed, leaving the building exposed to the elements during construction.
The ISEAL EP gasket is highly flexible and able to easily accommodate building movements while imparting lower loads on the panel joints as compared to a traditional sealant/backer rod joint. This reduces the risk of adhesive joint failure.
