GREENBUILD 2011: Dow Corning Features New Silicone Weather Barrier Sealant
Dow Corning featured its new 758 Silicone Weather Barrier Sealant, as well as other construction adhesives and sealants that can help architects and engineers design green buildings, at Greenbuild 2011.
Dow Corning 758 Sealant was highlighted in Building Design+Construction’s GreenZone Modular High-Performance Medical Facility.
The sealant is a one-part, low VOC, neutral cure silicone sealant, designed for unprimed adhesion to the surfaces of commonly used weather resistant barriers such as peel and stick, mechanically attached plastic films and other typical fenestration materials.
In addition to sealing challenging weather barrier substrates, the new sealant is designed to outperform traditional sealants by providing long-term durability, with stronger and more consistent adhesion performance. It has ± 25% movement capabilities, which provides the flexibility needed by building designers to create new, innovative structures. BD+C
