You can design with confidence, knowing that we’ll collaborate with you on solutions to improve the energy efficiency of buildings, reduce the eco-footprint of construction materials, and improve health and safety.
Enabling design freedom and unique architectural possibilities with UV resistance and structural capability.
Helping you design fire systems with confidence, ensuring that risks to buildings – and building occupants – are minimized by helping to limit the spread of fire through wall and meet building codes and regulations, fire-rated sealants.
Providing increased security and protection, and contributing to the safety of impact-resistant window systems by reducing the potential for broken glass being blown from its frame.
Meeting structural glazing performance standards around the world, structural glazing sealants from Dow enable architects to continue to enhance their building designs, contributing to visually stunning glass façades.
DOWSIL™ 335 is a primary butyl sealant for insulating glass in commercial applications that provides excellent homogenous color and aesthetics at the glass edge, along with increased temperature resistance.
In the 1960s, Dow pioneered a construction technology that has changed the face of the world’s cities – structural silicone glazing. No longer limited by the need for intrusive mechanical fasteners, architectural imaginations soared.
Today, reflections of sun and clouds glide across uninterrupted facades of mirrored glass, metal and stone...thanks to the innovative spirit and technological mastery of Dow.
Designed to transmit windloads from the glass to the building’s framework, structural silicone glazing systems must flex, extend and compress in rhythm with the daily stress of differential thermal shear. They must maintain their adhesive and cohesive strength in the face of earthquakes, hurricane force winds, the sun’s ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, moisture and acid rain.
