Dow Corning® Insulated Glass and Glazing Solutions

Dow Corning® Insulated Glass and Glazing Solutions

Proven silicone insulating glass sealants offer structural performance, durability, longevity and weatherability.

Get proven performance for challenging insulating glass applications

For over three decades, Dow Corning® brand silicone insulating glass sealants have been used in structural glazing applications. With UV resistance and structural capability, these sealants free designers imagination, enables unique architectural possibilities.

Used in conjunction with a polyisobutylene (PIB) primary sealant, Dow Corning insulating glass sealants consistently outperform non-silicone sealants in areas critical to the long-term performance of your insulating glass (IG) unit.

Benefits for Architectural Design

  • Enable unique architectural design freedom.
  • Achieve structural capability as secondary sealant for insulating glass units used in structural glazing.
  • Accommodate high climatic loads in triple-IG and gas-filled IG applications.
  • Enable thermally efficient facades.

Benefits for Engineers and Consultants

  • Get the backing of technical and service collaborative support from an industry leader.
  • Provide structural capability as secondary sealant for insulating glass units used in structural glazing.
  • Accommodate high climatic loads in triple IG and gas-filled IG applications.
  • Enable thermally efficient façades.

Benefits for Glass Fabricators and Contractors

  • Achieve structural capability as secondary sealant for insulating glass units used in structural glazing.
  • Meet specific IG unit performance requirements, such as ETA, EN and ASTM.
  • Accommodate high climatic loads in triple-IG and gas-filled IG applications.
  • Enable thermally efficient façades.
  • Enhance the quality, longevity and performance of your IG units.
  • Optimize processes.
  • Reduce maintenance requirements and costs.
  • Improve productivity and throughput.
  • Reduce your warranty costs.
  • Produce more competitive, higher-end IG units that are more desirable to customers.
  • Get the backing of technical and service support from an industry leader.

Get the silicone advantages

Dow Corning insulating glass sealants, used in conjunction with a polyisobutylene (PIB) primary sealant, consistently outperform non-silicone sealants in areas critical to the long-term performance of your IG unit, offering:

  • Structural performance
  • Excellent UV and weathering resistance
  • Superior long-term durability
  • Exceptional unprimed adhesion to most substrates
  • Unmatched service temperature range
  • Low shrinkage

Options to meet your exact needs

Dow Corning silicone insulating glass sealants are offered in a range of sealant types and formulations to answer your specific challenges.

  • Fast-curing two-part sealants increase productivity – shorter hold times enables you to build and ship more units.
  • One-part products simplify the application process.
  • Neutral-cure sealants offer excellent adhesion to a wide range of glass types and metal spacers; compatible with soft-coat low-E glass, enabling you to use the highest quality glass available for your application.

Neutral-cure one-part and fast-curing two-part sealants can be used as secondary seals in insulating glass units, in applications including:

  • IG units that will be structurally glazed
  • Dual- and triple-IG units
  • Gas-filled IG units
  • IG units that incorporate specialty glass types
  • Environments where high heat or humidity is encountered
  • Cold climate environments
  • Heat mirror applications

Dow Corning® 3-0117 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant

Dow Corning® 3-0117 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant is a single-component silicone elastomer intended for use as a secondary sealant in a dual-sealed insulating glass unit, and can be used in a unit that is structurally glazed. Dow Corning® 3-0117 cures in the presence of atmospheric moisture to produce a durable, high-modulus, flexible silicone seal that is chemically stable and shows little change in physical properties with weathering.

DOW CORNING® 3-7509 SILICONE SEALANT

Dow Corning® 3-7509 Silicone Sealant is a one part, fast curing insulating glass sealant. It cures in the presence of atmospheric moisture to produce a durable, high-modulus, flexible silicone seal. It is suitable for use in insulating glass units as the primary and secondary seal that will not be structurally glazed.

Dow Corning® 982 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant

Dow Corning® 982 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant is a two-part silicone sealant designed for use as a secondary sealant in a dual-sealed insulating glass unit, as well as in an insulating glass unit that will be structurally glazed. Dow Corning® 982 cures to a durable, high-modulus, flexible silicone seal that is chemically stable and creates a weathertight bond. Dow Corning® 982 has excellent unprimed adhesion to glass and metal substrates, such as galvanized steel and aluminum.

Dow Corning® 3362 HD Insulating Glass Sealant

Dow Corning® 3362 HD Insulating Glass Sealant has been extensively tested under different type of glass and conditions (air permeability, gas, etc.).

Dow Corning® 3363 Insulating Glass Sealant

Dow Corning® 3363 Insulating Glass Sealant is a high strength secondary two-part silicone sealant specifically designed for high strength applications, where conventional sealants with lower strength would lead to increased joint sizes. It enables economical joint sizes in highly demanding insulating glass applications such as: high wind in tall buildings, hurricane loads, cold-bent glass or high impact loads such as bomb blast. Smaller joint dimensions can be filled faster and therefore lead to productivity enhancements.

Dow Corning® 982-FS Insulating Glass Sealant

A two-part faster snapping silicone sealant designed for use as a secondary sealant in a dual-sealed insulating glass unit, as well as in an insulating glass unit that will be structurally glazed. Cures to a durable, high-modulus, flexible silicone seal that is chemically stable and creates a weathertight bond. Has unprimed adhesion to glass and metal substrates, such as stainless steel and aluminum.

Dow Corning® 982-FS Insulating Glass Sealant for Heat Mirror Applications

A two-part silicone sealant designed for use as a secondary sealant in a dual-sealed insulating glass unit with heat mirror films. Cures to a durable, high-modulus, flexible silicone seal that is chemically stable and creates a weathertight bond. Has unprimed adhesion to glass and metal substrates, such as stainless steel and aluminum as well as adhesion to treated heat mirror films.
