Crystal Clear Spacer

DOWSIL™ Crystal Clear Spacer is a ready to use silicone spacer for the assembly of air-filled insulating glass units where transparency is desired. It was developed to address growing industry trends for full vision insulating glass units (IGU’s).

DOWSIL™ Crystal Clear Spacer is a pre-formed material that builds chemical adhesion to glass within a few minutes after application. It is easy to install and eliminates the need for tape adhesives and therefore offers enhanced IGU productivity. Its flexibility allows for the manufacturing of rectangular and curved IGU’s.  An additional feature is the low thermal conductivity of the silicone spacer which can be beneficial in energy efficient designs. Spacers dimensions can be tailored to specific design needs.

Crystal Clear Spacer

DOWSIL™ Crystal Clear Spacer is perfectly suited for insulating glass in glass doors designed for vertical commercial refrigerators favored by shops and supermarkets, where full vision and high light transmission at the glass edge can enhance the presentation of goods. 

DOWSIL™ Crystal Clear Spacer is compatible with all DOWSIL™ Insulating Glass Silicone Secondary Sealants and new DOWSIL™ 335 Butyl Sealant for primary insulating glass seals.

For more detailed information and step-by-step application instructions, please refer to the product technical datasheet, spacer application guide or contact your local Dow representative.
