Dow Corning to Present its Structural Silicone Glazing Solution at CTBUH World Congress

Dow Corning offers structural silicone glazing (SSG) solutions for buildings to withstand the impact of rough weather conditions. Chinese city governments are in the quest for reliable and sustainable bonding materials for use in high-rise structures.

Lawrence Carbary, industry scientist for Dow Corning High Perfromance Building Solutions

The advance silicone materials from Dow Corning not only safeguard the building façade by enhanced structural silicone glazing but also score on the aesthetic factor.

In order to discuss the aspects of structural glazing, Lawrence Carbary, industry scientist for High Performance Building Solutions at Dow Corning will deliver a presentation at the 2012 Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) World Congress titled, “Asia Ascending: Age of the Sustainable Skyscraper City,” in Shanghai. The CTBUH will be hosted at Grand Hyatt Jin Mao from September 19 to 21. Lawrence Carbary’s presentation on “Advanced Structural Silicone Glazing” will be delivered on September 19 at 11.15 AM. Dow Corning is a silver sponsor of the CTBUH congress.

The advanced structural silicone glazing solutions from Dow Corning is the result of extensive research done over several decades. The technology has consistently proved its performance even under extreme weather conditions typical of typhoons, hurricanes and other conditions arising from seismic activities. High-rise buildings have played a major role in the urbanization of places in the world and have sparked a trend for efficient energy management. The popularity and utility of high-rise buildings have led to the evolution of rigorous standards for silicone structurally glazed facades design. The internationally known SSG design introduced by Dow Corning 40 years ago has played a significant role in numerous global landmarks like the Burj Khalifa Tower.
