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 Brown—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.
