Structural Silicone Glazing Adhesive

Structural Silicone Glazing Adhesive

Next-generation bonding maximizes thermal performance
of façades.

Crystal Clear Bonding for Point Fixed Glass Façades

For enhanced design freedom and aesthetics, Dow Corning® Transparent Silicone Structural Adhesive (TSSA) provides a next-generation bonding option for crystal clear, point fixed glass façades. Outperforming current technologies, innovative structural adhesive helps maximize thermal performance of façades.

Suitable for façade construction as well as for glass walls and interior decorative applications, Dow Corning® TSSA negates the need to drill and bolt through the glass – eliminating the potential for leakage of gas and thermal bridging.

Put crystal clear structural silicone glazing adhesive to work for you

Specifically designed for point-fixed single- or double-glazed façades,
Dow Corning® TSSA has the features needed to meet your challenges.

  • Capable of a live load design of 1.3 MPa.
  • Backed by the Dow Corning Quality Bond™ program – underscoring a commitment to manufacture using standards of best practice in quality control, quality assurance
    and application.
  • Dow Corning® TSSA has been extensively tested – durability is excellent, outperforming the requirements of the European Technical Approval Guideline 002.
  • Additional security and safety – a safety indicator within the silicone film turns the adhesive white when the stress level exceeds the maximum design value and returns back to crystal clear when stress is removed (see illustration).
