Learn more about how Dow Corning® brand building sealants can help your projects:

Dow Corning®121 Silicone Structural Glazing Sealant – An easy-to-use and fast-curing sealant, for use in structural and weather-sealing applications, which can be applied on-site or in-shop. This sealant simplifies facade installation and reduces repair time.

Dow Corning® Transparent Structural Silicone Adhesive (TSSA) for fixed-point exterior glass facades – An innovative, high strength, structural adhesive, TSSA provides a bonding option for crystal clear, point fixed glass external facades that negates the need to drill and bolt through glass – eliminating the potential for leakage of gas and thermal bridging.

Dow Corning® DefendAir 200 (PDF)  – This barrier prevents water infiltration with the ability to “breathe.” The water-based coating dries to form a flexible membrane that is impervious to liquid water, but allows moisture vapor to escape.
