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.

Product Features

  • Structural capability per ASTM C 11841

  • 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

  • Noncorrosive by-products

Applications

Dow Corning® 3-0117 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant is intended for use as a secondary sealant in a dual-sealed insulating glass unit . A primary seal, typically polyisobutylene mastic, is required to prevent moisture vapor from transmitting into the airspace of the insulting glass unit. Dow Corning 3-0117 Silicone Insulating Glass Sealant can bond the individual components, forming a weather-resistant unit capable of being certified to a CBA rating by an independent test laboratory in accordance with industry standards.2 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 have no responsibility in that connection
