The test results showed no adverse reaction to GE Silicones when testing the Diamon-Fusion hand application and vapor application process. 

Diamon-Fusion underwent a series of compatibility and adhesion tests using key GE Silicones sealants from Momentive, one and two-component sealants for insulating glass, residential glass, and weather seal/structural glazing. 

The test results showed no adverse reaction to GE Silicones when testing the Diamon-Fusion hand application and vapor application process. 

Momentive’s Sealants Lab completed the tests using the following standardized test methods for adhesion and compatibility:

  • ETAG 002 Part 1, Section 8.3.2.4.2 peel test
  • ISO 23658 Testing of adhesion properties using a bead peel test
  • ASTM C794 Standard Test Method for Adhesion-in-Peel of Elastomeric Joint Sealants
  • ASTM C1087 Standard Test Method for Determining Compatibility of Liquid-Applied Sealants with Accessories Used in Structural Glazing Systems

The test results show that with one isopropyl alcohol (IPA) wipe on the bonding area, the GE silicone products tested had 100% cohesive results. According to DFI, there was no discoloration, delamination or change of the coating. The vapor test provided the same results.

“We were pleased to see the positive results when testing GE branded silicones on Diamon-Fusion treated glass, which showed no advise reactions on adhesion or compatibility. Momentive is a significant leader in the marketplace and a premier global high-performance silicones and specialty company,” says Vice President of Marketing and Business Development Syndi Sim.
