Silicon-based Dow Corning sealants last longer and are more versatile than most organic polymer sealants. They are durable, one-part RTV sealants; cure at room temperature to a tough, rubbery solid with exceptional performance characteristics; and meet a wide variety of your industrial bonding and sealing needs.

Features of Dow Corning silicone sealants include:

  • Stability over a wide temperature range – When fully cured, many of our products can be used at temperatures ranging from -85° to 599°F (-65° to 315°C).
  • Weather resistance – High resistance to UV rays, radiation and weather prevents our products from hardening, cracking, crumbling, drying and becoming brittle.
  • Chemical stability – Our sealants do not readily degrade, even under long-term exposure to many chemicals and atmospheric pollutants.
  • Good bond strength – Our products provide good adhesion to a wide variety of industrial materials, including glass, ceramics and wood masonry; painted surfaces; and many metals and plastics.
  • Electrical properties – Designed for a variety of applications, our products can be used in various electrical and electronic applications, including devices that are thermally cycled over a wide temperature range.
  • Low flammability – In fire conditions, silicone adhesives/sealants are reluctant to burn. Many products comply with UL flammability standards.

When you specify an assembly and maintenance product from Dow Corning, you receive a solution backed by the world leader in silicone technology with more than 60 years of expertise and innovations.
