SAHAYOG Building Solution Center

The SAHAYOG Building Solutions Center will provide comprehensive project support, industry-leading technical training and hands-on skill-building workshops. The Center will be dedicated to providing enhanced technical support and customer service to India customers, serving industry professionals across the value chain.

Dow Corning Silicone Materials

The focus of the Center will be on the performance, safety and durability of buildings constructed using Dow Corning® silicone materials. SAHAYOG will enable visitors to see and experience the company’s range of high-performance building technologies such as:

  • 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 high-performance invisible panel bonding system is used 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 unique two-part, easy-to-use and fast-curing sealant is used for structural and weather-sealing applications. Its unique packaging allows it to be used in the field (on-site) and or in the factory (in-shop). It simplifies façade installation and reduces repair time as well. 

Innovative Silicone Adhesives & Sealants

In addition to these materials, the Center will also showcase the Dow Corning® portfolio of innovative silicone adhesives and sealants for building façades, silicone hot-melts, silicone-based water repellent coatings and additives to improve the sustainability of building materials, as well as the range of silicone solutions for infrastructure.

SAHAYOG will enable access to the company’s 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, the Center will provide a platform for the Centre for Construction Expertise, a Dow Corning-sponsored program, providing training tailored to the needs of India's construction industry.

India Commercial Manager, Dharmesh Shah said:

"We are very excited about the launch of Dow Corning’s second SAHAYOG Building Solutions Center in India, in collaboration with our channel partner, Allarch India Pvt. Ltd. Our silicone innovations have been playing a key role in the building and construction industry for many years, and this Center will help expand our reach to our stakeholders across the value chain in India. We are committed to providing our customers with best in class technical support and customer service. Now that Dow Corning Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, this gives us the opportunity for newer product offerings, increased geographic reach and expanded R&D power to bring innovations to our Indian customers faster."
