Aeroseal is a breakthrough aerosol-based sealing technology developed in 1993 by Dr. Mark Modera in his garage. For the first time ever it was possible to seal leaks in ducts from the inside out.
The problem is most ducts in commercial buildings leak air and this was chalked up to a common problem one that was just accepted. Case studies have shown sealing ducts reduces energy waste by eliminating the cracks & holes.
In Conclusion Aeroseal’s solution has made duct sealing cost effective & simple to accomplish, making it a top energy saving strategy for building owners and Facility Managers looking to eliminate energy consumption and IAQ problems.

AEROSEAL is a patented technology for efficiently and effectively sealing of existing air duct systems from inside out in the quickest possible and with little disruption.
Ductwork leakage rates are outlined in BESA DW144 and systems should be manufactured and installed to comply with this specification.
Now as an integral component in the installation of new ventilation systems, maximum air tightness requirements for duct work can be guaranteed as well as achieved.
The revolutionary and patented AEROSEAL process was developed in the 1990s at the University of Berkeley/California. This technology has now been successfully applied in more than 125,000 air duct systems, in residential and commercial buildings, all over the world.
Since its European launch in 2015 AEROSEAL has set new standards for the tightness of air duct systems.
Planners can guarantee that the complete ventilation system meets the requirements of the standards for tightness when AEROSEAL issues a tender.
Air duct manufacturers can prove that they meet the tightness requirements of DIN EN 1507 or DIN EN 12237 through their operational quality assurance and through the use of high-quality manufacturing products in production, manufacturers no longer have to deal with defects caused by the installation process.
Plant constructors can easily meet and prove the required tightness class during the installation of a plant. Costly reworking or the processing of defects is no longer necessary.
Operators and users benefit from optimal, energy-saving and efficient operation of the system.
Using this approach, inaccessible points of leakage can be sealed. Large sections of ductwork up to 150m can be sealed at a time dependent on design. Large ductwork systems can be sealed by breaking them down in to small sections.
Once the application is complete and set, Aeroseal sealant is able to withstand 2000Pa of pressure with an estimated lifetime of over 30 years (provided ductwork is not dismantled or cleaned with oxidising chemicals).
The cured sealant is completely odourless and will withstand temperatures from -29C to +249C.
Leakage points up to 20mm across may be sealed in one application, meaning system leakage can rapidly and easily be reduced. System leakage can be reduced by over 90%, allowing systems to meet design specification, and can therefore be upgraded to higher classification.
