  • Helping set best practices for our industry.

SWR Institute is a very active organization. Our committees, made up of contractors, manufacturers design professionals and consultants have developed several technical and safety manuals, two books and a two-day training video on sealants. Our volunteers have developed validation programs that offer third party verification of the products and training programs offered to the industry.  Committees also are heavily involved in planning SWR Institute Technical Meetings, increasing membership and promoting brand awareness in the industry.
