Further demonstrating Dow Corning’s commitment to its Indian customers, the company is also promoting several newer silicone-based innovations:
- Dow Corning® Transparent Structural Silicone Adhesive (TSSA) for fixed-point exterior glass façades: This innovative, high strength, structural adhesive provides a next-generation bonding option for crystal clear, point fixed external glass façades, helps maximize thermal performance, and allows designers to avoid unsightly drilling when joining glass pieces.
- Dow Corning® PanelFix System: This enables high-performance invisible panel bonding for ventilated rainscreen façades. This unique system enables a wider range of design options for designers and architects by ensuring pure, flush and uninterrupted façade aesthetics. It is also highly durable, safe and easy to use.
- Dow Corning® 121 Structural Glazing Sealant: This is an easy-to-use and fast-curing sealant, for use in structural and weather-sealing applications, which can be used on-site or in-shop. It simplifies façade installation and reduces repair time as well.
The company will also be promoting its Project Management System, helping enhance the safety, quality and success of structural silicone glazing projects; as well as the Quality Bond™ program, a global knowledge-transfer program for project partners that offers training, inspections and quality management systems. In addition, Dow Corning is also promoting its India-specific initiatives:
- Centre for Construction Expertise: This is a Dow Corning-sponsored program, providing training tailored to the needs of India's construction industry. It offers informative, skill-building workshops designed to improve the knowledge, skills and effectiveness of tradespeople, students and construction professionals alike.
