Application

Suitable for:

  • Insulating glass units for residential and commercial use.
  • Insulating glass units with high levels of UV exposure (free edge, greenhouse, etc.).
  • Insulating glass units incorporating specialty glass types.
  • Insulating glass units where high heat or humidity may be encountered.
  • Insulating glass in cold climates.
  • Insulating glass units used in structural glazing.
  • Secondary sealant in a dual sealed insulating glass unit.

Description

A two-part silicone sealant for use as a secondary seal in insulating glass units.


Features and benefits:

  • When used correctly, manufactured dual sealed insulating glass units meet EN 1279 and CEKAL requirements.
  • Outstanding adhesion to a wide range of substrates including coated and reflective glasses, aluminium and steel spacers, and a variety of plastics.
  • Structural capability as secondary sealant for insulating glass units used in structural glazing.
  • CE Marked according to ETAG 002 meets sealant requirements according to EN 1279 parts 4 and 6 and EN 13022.
  • Low water absorption.
  • Excellent temperature stability: -50°C to 150°C.
  • High level of mechanical properties- high modulus.
  • Non-corrosive cure.
  • Fast curing time.
  • Outstanding resistant to ozone and ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
  • Stable viscosity for A and B components, no heating required.
  • Can be compliant with EN 1279 part 3, but generally DOWSIL™ 3362 HD Insulating Glass Sealant is recommended for this application.


Preparation:

  • Sealant should be mixed in a ratio of 10:1 base to curing agent by weight, or equivalent 8:1 by volume for optimal properties.
  • At this mix ratio, the sealant typically exhibits a working time of 5–10 minutes and allows units to be handled within two hours.
  • Slight variations in mixing ratio can be tolerated, but these should not exceed 11:1 to 9:1 by weight or 8.8:1 to 7.2:1 by volume to ensure minimum properties are obtained.
  • It is recommended that the base and curing agent are thoroughly mixed using an airless mixing system.
