Dow Corning® InstantGlaze Window Assembly Sealants

Revolutionary Reactive Silicone Hot-Melts Increase Productivity and Reduce Costs

Dow Corning® InstantGlaze and InstantGlaze II are patented, neutral-cure, reactive hot-melt silicones that are ideal for automated backbedding applications. When used with standard hot-melt dispensing equipment and an automated XY glazing table, InstantGlaze becomes part of a total productivity solution...a solution that enables you to produce windows and doors faster, better and more economically than other technologies on the market today.

The Productivity Advantage

  • Ideal for automated backbedding applications
  • No bottlenecks because instant green strength allows windows to move to the next processing step immediately
  • No "hold time" allows windows to be shipped as quickly as they are produced, which reduces space requirements and increases facility utilization
  • Long pot life and open time provide processing flexibility and robust manufacturing options
  • Proven silicone chemistry is compatible with most common fenestration materials
  • Aggressive adhesion for long life and seamless seals
  • Nonhazardous formulation is low odor and worker friendly
  • Less waste: Dow Corning InstantGlaze sealants virtually eliminate the glazing failures common with tapes

The Performance Advantage

Dow Corning InstantGlaze Window Assembly Sealants deliver all the recognized performance capabilities of silicone, but unlike traditional silicone sealants, they are reactive hot-melt materials designed specifically to take full advantage of automated backbedding technology. They deliver instant green strength so windows can be immediately handled without risking the integrity of the seal or distorting the sash, offering significant productivity improvements.

InstantGlaze II was developed with the input of manufacturers specializing in aluminum, vinyl and wood fenestration products. InstantGlaze II is formulated to provide:

  • Increased compressibility
  • Quicker elastic recovery
  • Improved wet-out
