Below you will find specific examples of where adhesives and sealants are used. (You can click again on each advantage to roll the detailed information back up.

Eliminates corrosion associated with metal fasteners

Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Exterior/Interior Cladding & Fenestrations

Specific Applications Include:

  • Structural Window Glazing - Refers to the use of specially formulated silicone sealants which bond glass, metal, stone or other infill panels to framing members. Previously, windows and architectural panels were adhered to a building's structure via mechanical retention techniques which often times resulted in corrosion between dissimiliar metals.

Eliminates pull-through and dimpling of visibile panels

Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Exterior/Interior Cladding & Fenestrations

Specific Applications Include:

  • Structural Window Glazing - Refers to the use of specially formulated silicone sealants which bond glass, metal, stone or other infill panels to framing members. Previously, windows and architectural panels were adhered to a building's structure via mechanical retention techniques which often caused dimpling of panels.

Eliminates screw/rivet heads and harm to painted/finished surfaces

Market: Assembly (Rigid)
Application Area: Machinery

Specific Applications Include:

  • Power Supply Housing

Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Exterior/Interior Cladding & Fenestrations

Specific Applications Include:

  • Structural Window Glazing - Refers to the use of specially formulated silicone sealants which bond glass, metal, stone or other infill panels to framing members. Previously, windows and architectural panels were adhered to a building's structure via mechanical retention techniques which limited architecutral design.

Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Flooring

Specific Applications Include:

  • Up to the beginning of the 20th century, parquet was nailed. With the invention of parquet adhesives, a more visually appealing method of parquet installation was established.

Eliminates distortion or discoloration of parts caused by thermal joining methods

Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Appliances

Specific Applications Include:

  • Stainless Steel Door Assembly

Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Exterior/Interior Cladding & Fenestrations

Specific Applications Include:

  • Structural Window Glazing - Refers to the use of specially formulated silicone sealants which bond glass, metal, stone or other infill panels to framing members. Previously, windows and architectural panels were adhered to a building's structure via mechanical retention techniques which limited architecutral design.

Market: Transporation
Application Area: Vehicle Assemby

Specific Applications Include:

  • Aluminum Corner Posts for Shipping Containers

Facilitates tight bonds between close fitting surfaces; avoids unwanted visible joint lines

Market: Building and Construction
Application Area: Exterior/Interior Cladding & Fenestrations

Specific Applications Include:

  • Structural Window Glazing - Refers to the use of specially formulated silicone sealants which bond glass, metal, stone or other infill panels to framing members.
