DOWSIL™ 3-0117 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant
A single-component silicone elastomer intended for use as a secondary sealant in a dual-sealed insulating glass unit, and can be used in a unit that is structurally glazed. Dow Corning® 3-0117 cures in the presence of atmospheric moisture to produce a durable, high-modulus, flexible silicone seal that is chemically stable and shows little change in physical properties with weathering.
Designed for use as a backbedding sealant in the assembly of windows and doors. It is used with high-speed XY glazing equipment to improve manufacturing productivity and window performance. It can be used on most common window materials (wood, PVC, Aluminum, Fiberglass) for standard and impact-resistant glazing. It is also compatible with most common insulating glass sealants.
Designed to coat glass or other substrates with a thin layer of silicone. It is very fast curing and can be provided in different colors.The high performance features incorporated into this product make it especially suitable for coating application with a very high level of UV exposure. Due to its high flowability, it can be applied quickly, homogenousely and quite smooth so that a tooling is not required. Typical applications: glass spandrels, canopy glass, interior and exterior balustrades, even in deep cavity designs it provides benefits due to its flowability and fast curing properties.
