Quality Bond™ from Dow Corning takes silicone bonding and sealing to a new level through the introduction of a set of services and commitments, along with technical training. It brings together all members in the construction project value chain, such as façade consultants and design engineers, fabricators and processors, developers and architects. The Quality Bond™ program provides in-house and on-site training to fabricators and insulating glass processors. This program is supported by Dow Corning’s state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, proven products, as well as best industry practices in quality control and assurance.
This program demonstrates Dow Corning’s dedication toward encouraging higher quality standards, as well as the company’s continuing commitment to its valued customers in the Indian construction market.

The Quality Bond™ program will further enable the India market to benefit from enhanced performance, safety and durability in buildings thanks to Dow Corning’s world class products and the enhanced services provided by the program.”

Certified Quality Bond™ members will benefit from Dow Corning’s active support in implementing strict quality control and assurance regimes, along with testing and regular audits.

In addition, Dow Corning will provide certified members with industry referrals, thus helping enhance their business-to-business marketing and networking efforts.
