How the program works

  1. Contact the Dow Corning Distributor Resource Center about the building location and current sealant failure problems.
  2. Dow Corning will provide you with referrals to at least two contractors/consultants who have agreed to participate in the Building Envelope Protection Program.
  3. Dow Corning experts will be available to assist with the writing and/or review of specifications.
  4. You will be responsible for requesting bids and selecting contractors/consultants.
  5. The contractor you choose will work with the local Dow Corning distributor to help you select the appropriate materials and the appropriate standard or custom colors to meet your color needs.
  6. The Dow Corning distributor will perform the required adhesion pull tests to verify if a primer is needed.
  7. When the job is complete, the contractor will work with the distributor to obtain the warranty.
  8. Dow Corning will then issue a fully warranty.

Capture the lifecycle value of silicone building sealants from Dow Corning

Dow Corning® brand silicone sealants and weathersealing products significantly outperform competitive urethane organic sealants – lasting up to three times longer – dramatically lowering maintenance costs and lifetime ownership costs.
