Dow Corning Corp. has released its 1299 Silicone Seam Sealer that it said outperforms traditional acrylic sealants in narrow seam applications.
Dow Corning said this helps manufacturers deliver windows and doors that prevent air and water infiltration to reduce energy costs. It also delivers proven silicone performance at the cost of lower-performing organics, Dow said.
The Dow Corning 1299 Silicone Seam Sealer has a 100 percent silicone formulation, the company said, so it will not crack, degrade or discolor. The sealant is not extended with oils or solvents, ensuring there is little to no shrinkage during cure.
