One Part Structural Silicone Sealants
One Part Structural Silicone Sealants are predominately designed for structural glazing. Structural glazing is a method utilising a silicone sealant as an adhesive to attach glass, metal, or other panel materials to the external structure of a building – also sometimes known as a curtain wall.
Wind load and other impact loads on the façade are transferred from the glass or panel, through the structural silicone sealant to the structure of the building. The silicone sealant must maintain its adhesive and cohesive strength on the facade when subjected to wind loads and thermal stresses.
The one part structural silicone sealant packaging options allow for more flexibility of use by the installer, as the silicone can be conveniently used on building sites with minimal fuss.
