In response to recent design trends and to help meet industry requirements for improved energy efficiency and aesthetics of modern architectural glass, Dow has developed advanced, crystal clear silicone bonding technologies which can structurally bond glass and metal elements without penetrating their surface, hence preserving energy while enabling pure glass aesthetics.
Suitable for frameless glazing as well as glass walls, interior decorative applications, glass lamination and general glass bonding and assembly, the strength, durability and high transparency of these innovative silicone materials offer the potential for new design perspectives and increased natural daylight opening for the interior and exterior elements of building projects. More information and details on recent installations can be found at dow.com/crystalclearbonding.
