XIAMETER® Launches Bundle Program for Sealant Manufacturers

Published on 2011-01-14. Author : SpecialChem

MIDLAND, Mich. -- The XIAMETER® brand from Dow Corning recently launched a "bundle" program for sealant manufacturers around the world. Customers can purchase the standard silicones their businesses require, and get the best deal, when they order a combination of polymers, fluids and silanes from the XIAMETER® bundle program.

"Sealant manufacturers now can benefit from the convenience of buying everything they need from a single supplier in a single package," said Duane Govitz, global product market manager. "They get the security of knowing their bundle of products will be available when and where they need it."

Products include:
  • Base polymers and polymers with crosslinkable silanol functionality
  • Polydimethylsiloxane fluid for plasticizing
  • Silanes for use as adhesion promoters, moisture scavengers, coupling agents and crosslinkers
  • Fully formulated sealants

If a customer is dealing with the complexities of multiple suppliers, or worrying about material availability and shifting prices, the XIAMETER bundle can help. Customers also benefit from Dow Corning's global supply chain, which includes a newly completed integrated silicones manufacturing facility in Zhangjiagang, China.


The XIAMETER® brand of Dow Corning Corporation offers market-driven prices for standard silicone products. Introduced in 2002, the brand offers more than 2,100 products including silicone fluids, sealants, silanes, emulsions and rubber. The XIAMETER brand is a no-frills model offering cost effective products through streamlined services and a web-enabled order platform. The XIAMETER® business model was expanded in 2009 and now offers customers enhanced self-service functionality, extended volume quantity options, transparent pricing, and more credit term choices. In addition, a broader range of standard silicone products is offered as well as the ability to purchase through local distribution.
