Dow Corning’s Construction Solutions and Services Facilitate Sustainable Building Construction

Dow Corning is enhancing its range of construction solutions and services to assist the increasing demand of designing and building high-performance, green, novel buildings.

Dow Corning’s silicon-based concrete admixtures, water repellents, coatings and sealants are developed to strengthen and protect building materials in new building and renovation projects. Silicone-based concrete admixtures are utilized for the pre-treatment of substrates to decrease water evaporation and thermal conductivity in materials.

Silicone-based water repellents are used to prevent water penetration into materials, reducing the requirement for building repairs, while sealants are utilized for weatherproofing and structural glazing purposes to improve the operating life and energy performance of the buildings. The sealants have an operating life three times more than organic sealants utilized for the same purposes. They remain flexible and tolerate common temperature limits and ultraviolet light effects.

When utilized with other building materials, Dow Corning silicone products can increase a building’s LEED credits as managed by the U.S. Green Building Council. The company also offers industry experts with design tools, technical knowledge, product information and other resources to form complete building system solutions.

Saulo Rozendo, global strategic marketer of Dow Corning’s Construction Industry, commented that construction of energy-saving, sustainable buildings needs the joint efforts of the construction and design industries. During the past four decades, Dow Corning’s silicone products have been the ultimate choice for building designers and architects for durable, eco-friendly building material solutions.
