Dow Corning features new silicone weather barrier sealant at Greenbuild 2011
Dow Corning 758 Sealant will be highlighted in the Building Design+Construction’s (BD+C) GreenZone Modular High-Performance Medical Facility as well as the Dow Corning booth, 6812S.
“The construction industry is continuously being challenged to benefit society, the environment, and the economy,” said Arturo Cuellar, Americas Building Projects Market Leader, Construction Industry, Dow Corning. “One way is to collaborate and innovate to make better use of our natural resources through energy efficiency.” Dow Corning 758 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 percent movement capabilities, which provides the flexibility needed by building designers to create new, innovative structures.
