Glass High Rise Buildings - Best High Volume Dispensing Systems for Silicone Adhesives and Sealants

Silicones are a large class of synthetic materials that include silicone sealants, and adhesives that can help make buildings and structures withstand the test of time. As a building material, silicones are extremely durable and can resist decay caused by severe weather conditions, moisture, or sunlight. Silicones also enable innovative architecture and engineering feats, such as dramatic glass facades or curved and suspended structures.

Key Benefits of Silicone Adhesives and Sealants

  • Help prolong the integrity of exterior paints and coatings to last longer in sun, salt, pollution, and with age.
  • These sealants add flexibility to building structures, allowing materials to absorb stress and movement caused by wind or earthquakes.
  • Can contribute to energy efficiency by overall reducing energy use in a building.
