For use in: 
Description
Dow Corning® 983 Structural Glazing Sealant is designed for specialized use where dual structural and weatherseal applications are desired for factory glazing and curtainwall production. Once cured, this structural sealant forms a durable, flexible, watertight bond that can be warranted for 20 years and used in ±25% movement weatherseal applications. It has excellent unprimed adhesion to glass, alodine, and anodized aluminum1, although Dow Corning® Primer C is recommended for fast and consistent adhesion, especially to Kynar™ and other high-performance substrates approved for architectural structural glazing applications.
