Fascinating Silicone™ Success Story – Construction

The structural silicone glazing sealants used to seal the Exchange Square Building in Hong Kong in 1984 are still performing today.

Where tropical weather met its match

In spite of tropical heat and humidity, frequent heavy rains, and typhoons, and the degrading effects of air pollution, the Exchange Square building is a prominent and enduring feature of the Hong Kong skyline. Constructed in 1984, it was the largest structural silicone project of its time. For more than 20 years, the silicone building sealants and glazing and curtainwall adhesives used to adhere the monolithic glass to the building’s 200-meter (656-foot) towers have performed as reliably as the day they were installed.


Did you know ... the uninterrupted walls of glass and metal on today’s skyscrapers would not have been possible without structural silicone glazing sealants!
