Dow Corning® Americas Construction Technical Manual  Dow Corning® Americas Fenestration Technical Manual  InstantGlaze Window Assembly Sealant Technical Manual
This manual is intended to give guidance on proper application procedures and assist in the development of a quality assurance program for the application of Dow Corning® brand silicone sealants for structural and weathersealing systems. As construction projects vary in many aspects, such as design, customer requirements, and environment, this manual cannot be considered a comprehensive quality assurance program for all situations. This manual offers guidance on sealant choice and application procedures for Dow Corning's line of fenestration sealants. You will find advice regarding substrate suitability, material compatibility, quality testing, joint design, and dispensing equipment. This manual explains how you can achieve the InstantGlaze advantage for productivity, economy, and quality when you use this reactive hot-melt silicone with standard hot-melt dispensing equipment and an automated X-Y glazing table. You will find practical facts to help you with industry certifications, typical yield per gallon, typical bead compression, application procedures, quality control/application issues, equipment issues, and service considerations.
