Silicone adhesives from Dow Corning are substances capable of holding
materials together by surface attachment. Silicone sealants are materials
applied to a joint or gap to form a seal against gas or liquid entry. Sealants
are also used to protect delicate components and make them more rugged.
Silicone adhesives and sealants from Dow Corning provide:
Excellent electrical properties
Good weather resistance
Stability and flexibility over a wide temperature range
Outstanding (normally primerless) adhesion to a variety of substrates
Heat accelerated or room temperature cures
Better flexibility and a broader service temperature range than epoxy
adhesives and sealants
Stronger unprimed adhesion to metal substrates and a broader service
temperature range than urethane adhesives

and Sealants tutorial.
