Put the silicone advantage to work for you

Designed for use on expansion joints, construction joints and crack-control joints in concrete, Dow Corning® silicone pavement sealants:

  • Keeps water and incompressible debris out of joints to maintain their function and avoid cracks and prevents freeze-thaw damage.

  • Resist UV radiation, extreme temperatures and weather conditions.

  • Provide long-lasting sealing by accommodating extreme movement (thermal stress).

  • Exhibit excellent recovery characteristics, making them ideal for use in joints that experience a high degree of movement.

  • Outperform organic alternatives – silicones have greater UV stability and temperature and weather resistance to ensure a long life span.

  • Create long-lasting, flexible, low- to ultralow-modulus, high-elongation silicone rubber seals capable of withstanding extension of 100 percent and compression of 50 percent of the original joint width.

Available in varying product options, Dow Corning® silicone pavement sealants make it simple to find the right material for your need:

  • Easy-to-install one-part sealants or rapid-cure two-part sealants

  • Ultralow modulus sealants for joints in concrete and asphalt pavements that place very little stress on the surfaces

  • Self-leveling sealant to reduces labor costs
