Join Dow High Performance Building Solutions at The World Architecture Festival 2017, Your Annual Dose of Architectural Excellence

Now in its 10th year, the World Architecture Festival (WAF) is a three day event for architects and interior design professionals. WAF is where the world architecture community meets to celebrate, learn, exchange and be inspired.

Taking place on 15 - 17 November at the Arena Berlin, Germany it will feature keynote talks from the industry’s most influential figures, live crit presentations, judging of over 400 award finalists, global networking, a 500-project strong gallery and an international product exhibition.

Dow will feature its range of high-performance silicone-based products under the new DOWSIL™ product brand, which represents the combined power of Dow and Dow Corning. These will include a new range of optically clear, crystal clear bonding solutions for interior and exterior glass-glass and glass-metal connections in applications such as point fixed facades, point and area lamination specific structural glazing designs and general assembly – all engineered to enhance design freedom, aesthetics and performance.

Also on display will be the DOWSIL™ PanelFix System, tailor-made for bonding non-glass panels that require high durability and fast handling in rain screen and ventilated façades. This system is suitable for use with a range of architectural panel types, including aluminium, fibre-reinforced cement (FRC), high-pressure laminates (HPL) and ceramic tiles.

For more than 50 years Dow Corning has pioneered silicone science, enabling architects with the freedom to implement their most ambitious designs through the application of innovative sealant and bonding solutions for weatherproofing and silicone structural glazing. With years of ongoing application quality control improvements and continued product innovations, Dow silicone weatherproofing sealants typically last 3 times longer than organic products in the same application.

We invite you to visit our experts at our Booth B20, who will be ready to help you develop creative and innovative solutions for your next construction project.
