Innovation from Dow Corning: An Approach towards Sustainable Building Facades


At a time when energy performance of buildings needs to be addressed by visionary designers, clients and contractors, the challenge is to attain efficiency in performance, maintain highest quality and timely execution of projects. Silicon-based materials from Dow Corning are versatile and designed into systems that contribute to overall building performance such as structural glazing, insulating glazing, insulation and weatherproofing. Dow Corning has harnessed the inherent, unmatched properties of silicone to create modern solutions which enable improved aesthetics and building functionality, to help boost energy efficiency, increase access to natural light for building occupants and enlarge dwelling space.

One recent innovation is Dow Corning® Transparent Silicone Structural Adhesive which provides next generation crystal clear bonding for point fixed facades, to help maximise thermal performance enhance design freedom of building facades; www.dowcorning.com / crystal clear bonding. Also recently introduced is Dow Corning® PanelFix System, a cost-effective, easy-to-use alternative to mechanical fixation of facade panels and rainscreens (www.dowcorning.com/panelfix)

A global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, Dow Corning’s proven and durable materials are adopted in high performance buildings worldwide. Full project support is available from their dedicated team of global in-house experts, who can inform and advise on building design issues with the aim to construct beautiful buildings with extended lifecycles whilst being adaptive and fit for purpose.
