DOW CORNING: Weather Sealant

October 18, 2011

This company featured its new Dow Corning® 758 silicone weather barrier sealant at Greenbuild 2011, which took place recently in Toronto.

“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. “One way is to collaborate and innovate to make better use of our natural resources through energy efficiency.”

The 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 sealant is reportedly designed to outperform traditional sealants by providing long-term durability, with stronger and more consistent adhesion performance.
