Get the silicone advantages

Dow Corning insulating glass sealants, used in conjunction with a polyisobutylene (PIB) primary sealant, consistently outperform non-silicone sealants in areas critical to the long-term performance of your IG unit, offering:

  • Structural performance
  • Excellent UV and weathering resistance
  • Superior long-term durability
  • Exceptional unprimed adhesion to most substrates
  • Unmatched service temperature range
  • Low shrinkage

Options to meet your exact needs

Dow Corning silicone insulating glass sealants are offered in a range of sealant types and formulations to answer your specific challenges.

  • Fast-curing two-part sealants increase productivity – shorter hold times enables you to build and ship more units.
     
  • One-part products simplify the application process.
     
  • Neutral-cure sealants offer excellent adhesion to a wide range of glass types and metal spacers; compatible with soft-coat low-E glass, enabling you to use the highest quality glass available for your application.
     

Neutral-cure one-part and fast-curing two-part sealants can be used as secondary seals in insulating glass units, in applications including:

  • IG units that will be structurally glazed
  • Dual- and triple-IG units
  • Gas-filled IG units
  • IG units that incorporate specialty glass types
  • Environments where high heat or humidity is encountered
  • Cold climate environments
  • Heat mirror applications
