For the rapidly growing Indian construction market, Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation has launched its new range of silicone-based technologies and solutions. The solution includes sealants for panel bonding as well as fire-rated joint sealants and acrylic sealants designed for internal perimeter of fire-rated doors and windows. The company has also introduced a weatherproofing sealant for general glazing and weather-sealing of curtain wall and building facades and a transparent silicone structural adhesive (TSSA) that eliminates the need to drill holes in glass for bolt fixation in spider fitted hardware in point fixed glazing systems. Another product is a high design strength system which can be used in high wind load environments. This is a unique design (patent pending) which can take care of the structural load of the glass face and at the same time uses less aluminium and sealants.
