Proven Impact-Resistant Sealant Solutions for Protection from Natural and Man-Made Forces
Increase Occupant Safety and Protection of Buildings
Modern buildings are being designed to provide protection from the unexpected. Whether from natural forces – such as hurricanes, typhoons, extreme weather or seismic activity – or man-made threats – such as bomb blasts and criminal trespass, silicones provide a flexible anchor between the glass and frame.
Dow Consumer Solutions impact-resistant silicone structural sealants contribute to the safety of impact-resistant window systems – reducing the potential for broken glass being blown from its frame – and help provide increased security and protection.
