Dow Corning® CCS & CWS Silicone Sealants

Dow Corning® CCS Contractors Concrete Sealant

Low-modulus 100% silicone joint sealant

FEATURES

  • Excellent all-weather performance in building joints that experience extreme movement.
  • Excellent unprimed adhesion to concrete, brick and masonry.
  • Low VOC content.
  • Easily gunnable in all weather conditions.
  • Extension/compression capability of ±50 percent.
  • Available in 10.3-ounce cartridges, 20-ounce sausages and two-gallon pails.
  • 5-Year Weatherseal Limited Warranty

APPLICATIONS

  • Joints surrounding window and door openings in concrete walls
  • EIFS joints
  • Joints between tilt-up concrete
  • Construction joints on most building materials in any combination

DESCRIPTION

CCS is a one-part, moisture-cure silicone sealant that provides durable, flexible, watertight joint seals and offers outstanding unprimed adhesion to concrete, brick and masonry. The low-modulus material places only a low stress on the sealant/substrate bondline and exhibits good recovery from extension and compression, enabling superior performance in joints that experience movement extremes. The high joint movement capability of CCS typically allows for the repair of failed joints with no joint widening, saving time and labor costs over organic products. CCS is available in 11 standard colors, 50 made-to-order special colors through our Color It Right program and a virtually unlimited palette of custom colors.


Dow Corning® CCS & CWS Silicone Sealants

Dow Corning® CWS Contractors Weatherproofing Sealant

Medium-modulus 100% silicone joint sealant

FEATURES

  • Primerless on EIFS and most common nonporous building substrates, including glass and aluminum.
  • Balanced adhesive strength, medium modulus and high recovery.
  • Excellent all-weather gunnability and performance.
  • Extension/compression capability of ±25 to ±40 percent.
  • Available in 10.3-ounce cartridges, 20-ounce sausages and two-gallon pails.
  • 5-Year Weatherseal Limited Warranty

APPLICATIONS

  • Dynamically moving joints such as expansion and control joints
  • Concrete panel joints
  • Tilt-up panel joints
  • Curtainwall joints
  • Frame-to-structure and perimeter caulking (windows, doors, panels, EIFS, radon mitigation, bedding of mullions, panels and frames, etc.)

DESCRIPTION

This unique, weather-resistant formulation is ideal to withstand adverse conditions, including moisture, movement, sheer and deflection, in common installations. It is easily gunnable in all weather conditions from -20 to 120°F (-29 to 49°C). Because it requires no mixing and a smaller joint thickness requirement, it is an economical, high-performance alternative to other sealant options with a ±25 to ±40 percent movement capability. CWS is available in 20 standard colors, 50 made-to-order special colors through our Color It Right program and a virtually unlimited palette of custom colors .

Why Dow Corning® Contractors Concrete Sealant and Dow Corning® Contractors Weatherproofing Sealant Are the Right Choice

Price

Dow Corning now delivers silicone performance at urethane-competitive prices. Dollar for dollar, you can’t get better performance for the price than with Dow Corning® Contractors Concrete Sealant (CCS) and Dow Corning® Contractors Weatherproofing Sealant (CWS). Unlike organic urethane products, silicone sealants:

  • Are virtually unaffected by UV light, ozone, rain, snow or temperature extremes
  • Stay flexible and maintain adhesion, even while being stretched or compressed
  • Will not crack, split or tear.

CCS and CWS carry a 5-Year Weatherseal Limited Warranty from Dow Corning, a brand you can trust from a company that stands behind its claims. Many urethane products carry no published warranty. With CCS and CWS, you don’t have to compromise performance for price.

Color

Design aesthetics are crucial to every project, no matter how small. That’s why CCS comes in 11 standard colors and CWS comes in 20 standard colors,50 made-to-order special colors through our Color It Right program and a virtually unlimited palette of custom colors.There is no extra charge for special colors with a minimum order. With CCS and CWS, you don’t have to compromise performance for color choice.

Application Flexibility

Specifying a sealant can be an overwhelming task. There are hundreds of product choices and dozens of factors that must be considered. For small- and mid-size projects, making the right choice just got a lot easier: cost-competitive, 100% silicone CCS and CWS. In addition to all-temperature gunnability and performance, these sealants also offer primerless adhesion to many common porous and nonporous building substrates. (See product specifications Section 07 92 00 for Joint Sealants for more information.) With CCS and CWS, you don’t have to compromise application flexibility for price.

Paintability

The commonly accepted thinking about sealants is that although silicone offers superior performance, urethane is paintable. But what about the long-term aesthetics of painted urethane sealant? If the paint can’t match the sealant’s movement, it will crack, peel and fall off. Aside from aesthetic issues, this exposes the sealant underneath to damaging UV rays. UV exposure isn’t a problem for silicone sealants.

But as this image show, urethane sealants quickly degrade when exposed to UV radiation. These latent defects make callbacks more likely and reflect poorly on the quality of your workmanship ... even if you had no control over which sealant was specified.

Encouraging the use of price-competitive, 100% silicone CCS and CWS instead of urethane can benefit your reputation and your budget! With a virtually unlimited palette of colors available, you don’t have to compromise performance for paintability.

Application Flexibility

There’s a sudden drop in temperature and your crew is now left trying to fill thousands of lineal feet of construction joints with urethane sealant that’s difficult to extrude. If you’ve ever been in this position, you’ll appreciate the all-temperature gunnability of silicone sealants. CCS and CWS also offer primerless adhesion to many common porous and nonporous building substrates. (See product specifications for Section 07 92 00 for Joint Sealants for more information.) CCS and CWS can save you time, labor and money ... not to mention a lot of frustration! With CCS and CWS, you don’t have to compromise application flexibility for price.
