Published on 2011-10-07. Author : SpecialChem

Dow Corning Features its new Dow Corning® 758 Silicone Weather Barrier Sealant, as well as other construction adhesives and sealants that can help architects and engineers design green buildings, at Greenbuild 2011, in Toronto.

Dow Corning® 758 Sealant is highlighted in the Building Design+Construction's (BD+C) GreenZone Modular High-Performance Medical Facility as well as the Dow Corning booth, 6812S.

"The construction industry is continuously being challenged to benefit society, the environment, and the economy," said Arturo Cuellar, Americas Building Projects Market Leader, Construction Industry, Dow Corning. "One way is to collaborate and innovate to make better use of our natural resources through energy efficiency."

Dow Corning® 758 Sealant is a one-part, low VOC, neutral cure silicone sealant, designed for unprimed adhesion to the surfaces of commonly used weather resistant barriers such as peel and stick, mechanically attached plastic films and other typical fenestration materials.

In addition to sealing challenging weather barrier substrates, the new sealant is designed to outperform traditional sealants by providing long-term durability, with stronger and more consistent adhesion performance. It has ± 25 percent movement capabilities, which provides the flexibility needed by building designers to create new, innovative structures.

"Dow Corning's innovative approach to designing the 758 sealant has allowed the company to deliver the building industry a product with reliable, strong adhesion unmatched by traditional sealant solutions ," added Cuellar.

Greenbuild is the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. The international expo showcases the latest in innovative products and services, exemplifying the idea of utilizing green to grow business to attendees from around the world.
