Structural glazing materials

The following materials are necessary for successful realization of architectural or building projects:

1. Joint sealants

Silicon joint sealants for structural glazing:
  •  DC 993 silicone joint sealant for structural glazing
  •  DC 895 silicone joint sealant for structural glazing
Silicon joint sealants for glass units:
  • DC 3362 silicone joint sealant for glass units
  • DC 3793 silicone joint sealant for glass units
Weatherproof joint sealants:
  • DC 791 silicone weatherproof joint sealant
Cleaning agents and prime coats:
  • DC R-40
  • DC 3522 concentrated cleaning solvent
2. Aluminium profiles

Aluminium, anodized or polyester powder painted profiles Qualanod or Qualicoat.
3. Stainless steel

4. Glass
  • Laminated glass
With the use of some sorts of laminated glass containing polyvinylbutyral (PVB), top layers can stratify up to 6 mm at contact with silicone joint sealant. It influences only aesthetic properties, not affecting the functional performance.
  • Coated glass (matte and tinted)
Silicone joint sealant has poor adhesion to soft layers. Therefore, soft layer should be removed from all glass surfaces in order for silicone joint sealant to work properly as a structural joint sealant. Particles of soft coating on glass surface can lead to weak adhesion (silver rust).
  • Glass with hard, ceramic, enamel, matte coating (applied during production)
  • Tinted glass (transparent float-glass, tempered and heat-resistant glass, glass processed with sand-blasting or acid etched)
  • Self-cleaning and easily cleared glass
5. Seal components and rubber materials

Incompatibility of rubber material can be caused by plasticizers able to penetrate into structural silicone and cause change of color, softening, as well as loss of adhesion.
  • Cast silicone, polyurethane foam or polyethylene foam tape, vinyl or polyvinylchloride materials, gaskets and seal components made of 100 % silicone polymers.
  • Seal components and supporting blocks from neoprene or EPDM. When using these materials, the color of water-resistant joint sealants can change.
