DOWSIL™ Membrane Façade System from Dow

DOWSIL™ membrane façade system for façade sealing

Sealing critical areas

With energy regulations and climate policy targets establishing strict requirements for future buildings, installing systems that protect the building envelope from weather and ensuring that the building’s internal climate and living conditions can be maintained or improved is becoming increasingly important.

Gaps in construction and openings created for fenestration systems must be properly sealed to avoid convectional heat losses through air leakage and avoid entry points for moisture. Consquently, Dow has recently introduced a range of EPDM membranes with the added benefit of high quality Dow EPDM raw materials, to help increase their service life and long-term performance.

This new system for façade sealing consists of a choice of DOWSIL™ Membranes and DOWSIL™ 300 Adhesive, offering a complete high performance solution for the creation of interior and exterior weather and air-tight seals. Thanks to their ability to provide a flexible seal and protect areas including sharp angles and corners and seal across adjacent building elements, DOWSIL™ membranes tolerate normal building movement and inclement weather conditions including freeze/thaw. This new façade sealing system provides a smooth solution for vertical surfaces and ensures a secure closure of the building envelope.

Safe and easy to cut into shape and install, DOWSIL™ Membranes are recommended for use where a functional air-tight and weather-resistant seal is desired

DOWSIL™ Membranes must be bonded and secured in place using DOWSIL™ 300 Adhesive. With good initial grab, this flexible adhesive has a broad adhesion profile, and is supplied in 600ml foil packs, ideal for manual gun application.
