High Performance Building

Expertise and innovation to improve
design freedom, increase energy
efficiency, and achieve safer, healthier
and more productive buildings.

 
 

High Performance is taking energy savings, comfort, safety and protection to new heights.

Cutting energy use. Minimizing maintenance costs. Designing ever more livable, productive and beautiful buildings. At Dow Corning, we've been innovating with the silicon atom to help customers solve their construction challenges for nearly seven decades. We're continually collaborating with them to create better ways to seal, insulate, light, power and protect more sustainable buildings. Some results of this green innovation:

  • Super-thin vacuum-packed insulation technology that offers more interior space and greater energy efficiency in buildings
  • Tougher, more reliable built-in PV and thermal solar systems
  • Reduced environmental footprint of building materials
  • Hydrophobic powder for cement-based products that minimizes moisture-based
    heat loss
  • Longer life and greater reliability for LED bulbs and fixtures

So whether you own, design, construct or create materials for green buildings, call on us to help you explore new designs, reduce carbon footprint and minimize total lifetime costs.


Bringing higher performance to every aspect of your
construction-related challenge.


  • Improved productivity
    Our solutions are designed to save time, effort and money in your construction projects. Plus you can count on us for on-the-ground service teams and application assistance to add ease to your complex construction projects and processes.
     
  • Energy efficiency and
    green materials

    The sustainable nature of silicone is key to meeting LEED and other global equivalent objectives. And we're continually advancing its potential to help make buildings more eco-friendly-via advances in insulation, energy-saving facades, low-VOC protective coatings, smart windows and more.
  • Design freedom
    We'll help you take advantage of silicone's ability to enable unique designs without compromising performance-from more energy-efficient options, to more daylight, to increased spatial dwelling. Our innovations offer a growing palette of options to help architects and designers achieve spectacular designs.
  • Proven performance
    Silicones greatly outperform organics in durability and other key aspects, making them ideal for construction. Plus we help ensure your peace of mind in many other ways-including our global footprint that ensures reliable delivery, rock-solid warranties, and complete technical service.
