Product №: SA30117

Description

Insulating Glass Sealant

Dow Corning® 3-0117 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant is 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.

ADVANTAGES AND BENEFITS

* Structural capability per ASTM C11841
* Excellent unprimed adhesion to glass and metal substrates, such as galvanized steel, stainless steel and aluminum
* Single-component formulation; minimizes waste and downtime by eliminating base purging and static mixer maintenance
* Consistently non-slump, permitting automated glazing
* Non-corrosive by-products

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Dow Corning® 3-0117 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant can also be used as a secondary edge seal in an insulating glass unit that will be structurally glazed.
However, if an insulating glass manufacturer elects to use this sealant in this application, it is their responsibility to determine the suitability for the use contemplated. Dow Corning will bear no responsibility in that respect.

Dow Corning 3-0117 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant should not be applied:
* As a primary or single seal in an insulating glass unit
* To building materials that bleed oils, plasticizers or solvents -- materials such as impregnated wood, oil-based caulks, green or partially vulcanized rubber gaskets and tapes
* On food contact surfaces -- this product does not comply with FDA food additive regulations
* In below-grade applications
* Where it will be in contact with or exposed to sealants that liberate acetic acid
* In totally confined spaces (the sealant requires atmospheric moisture and must release by-product to cure)
* For continuous immersion in water
