Abstract : A sealant composition comprising a non-crosslinked, elastomeric mastic and an extrusion-inhibiting amount of vulcanzied rubber particles of irregular shape and having sharp edges and angular surfaces. When the composition is used as a channel sealant, the ability of the particles to deform at structural gaps while offering resistance to extrusion prevents the loss of the elastomeric mastic.
