Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, today announced the launch of its new range of silicone-based technologies and solutions for the rapidly growing Indian construction market.
The newly launched solutions include sealants for panel bonding, as well as fire-rated joint sealants and acrylic sealants designed for internal perimeter of fire-rated doors and windows. Dow Corning introduced a premium performance weatherproofing sealant specifically designed for general glazing and weather-sealing of curtainwall and building facades. One of the innovative introductions is a transparent silicone structural adhesive (TSSA) - a new technology that eliminates the need to drill holes in glass for bolt fixation in spider fitted hardware in point fixed glazing systems. Another innovation is a High Design Strength system which can be used in high wind load environments. This is a unique design (patent pending) which can take care of the structural load of the glass face while at the same time using less aluminium and sealants.
Padmadas Nair, Dow Corning’s commercial manager for the construction industry commented, “These new solutions will enable our Indian customers to create world-class structures that help fulfill their requirements for innovative design, energy efficiency and long-term sustainability. These solutions along with our Quality Bond™ program will help ensure the right application of these technologies to better benefit the building owner. The fact that we have introduced these solutions here demonstrates Dow Corning’s continuing commitment to its valued customers in the Indian construction market”.
