Get the silicon-based innovations you need for energy efficiency

With an integrated systems approach, Dow Corning offers a full range of silicon-based innovations and technologies to help optimize energy efficiency in new construction and renovations:

  • Dow Corning® Silicone Air Barrier System - the only water-based silicone air barrier complemented by a fully compatible system offers unlimited UV exposure, superior breathability and meets regulatory air tightness requirements for energy efficiency with excellent moisture resistance.
  • Dow Corning® Transparent Silicone Structural Adhesive (TSSA) provides a next-generation bonding option for crystal-clear, point-fixed glass façade for more daylight, improved energy efficiency and weather resistance.
  • Dow Corning® brand Weatherproofing Sealants provide lasting seals at critical interfaces to prevent or eliminate air losses (in and out) that can otherwise increase energy demand from heating and cooling equipment over the service life of a building.
  • Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), silicon-enabled and silicone-sealed, can provide supplemental building energy.
  • Double, triple or gas-filled insulating glass units, sealed with a secondary silicone sealant, can be used for energy-efficient, structural silicone glazing (SSG) solutions to meet design trends for high design strength.
  • Silicones and silicon-based materials are helping achieve bright-white, energy-efficient LED lighting that offers better performance, reliability, light output and color, and yellowing resistance than organic materials.
  • Water-repellent construction chemicals (silanes, siloxanes, resins) help minimize moisture-based heat loss through cement-based products.
