Protective Glazing Solutions

Improve your building protection with protective or impact-resistant glazing.

Improve your building protection with protective or impact-resistant glazing.

Maximize Your Protection

By reducing the potential for broken glass to be blown from its frame, you can increase the safety of building occupants and pedestrians.  Flying glass is a serious cause of injury during natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes and typhoons.

Whether you need factory-laminated window systems for new construction or need to retrofit film systems for existing windows, when properly designed, silicone glazing material can contribute to the safety of your impact-resistant window systems.

The Silicone Anchor

High-performance Dow Corning® brand structural silicone sealants are common to today's protective glazing systems.  They are used as glazing sealants to anchor impact-resistant glass to the window frame.  Project specifiers find silicone sealants meet their requirements for:

  • High tensile and tear strength
  • Long-term flexibility
  • Proven resistance to weather and temperature extremes, and ultraviolet light
  • Excellent adhesion to glass and most window frame materials
