Explore the Balance of Technology and Viability for Façade Construction at ZAK World of Facades
Markus Plettau, Regional Market Manager – EMEA, Dow Corning, will present a paper at ZAK World of Facades 2017, which will focus on our most recent silicone technologies that deliver crystal clear bonds in modern glass designs, for enhanced design and performance.
Markus will discuss how these new high strength silicone films and hot melt silicones are set to revolutionize the future of interior and exterior structural glass bonding and general assembly in a range of applications, where a long lasting, high strength, crystal clear seal is desired.
ZAK World of Façades is now in its 26th edition and provides an interactive platform whereby construction stakeholders can engage and network, to debate new dimensions, innovations and industry trends. This year’s event will be held on 21st March 2017 at The Conrad in Dubai and we invite you to join Markus in Session 4 at 4.20pm to learn more about the our crystal clear innovations for glass designs. Dow Corning specialists will also be available at our accompanying exhibition booth to share knowledge and expertise on the benefits of façade construction using silicone materials.
