Dow Corning® Launches Quality Bond to Boost Creative Glazing with Silicones

Dow Corning has launched a landmark initiative for the structural glazing and insulating glass market.

Called Quality Bond™, the program will bring together real estate owners and investors, architects, façade consultants and engineers, system suppliers and applicators in sharing Dow Corning's extensive know-how in structural glazing and other silicone-based bonding applications.

The initiative is to be deployed in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and reinforces Dow Corning's commitment toward instilling higher quality standards, while demonstrating Dow Corning's dedication to the Construction industry as a whole.

"Accelerating architectural creativity and fast-growing requirements in energy efficiency and transparency are fueling demand for advanced structural glazing solutions across the globe. Quality Bond™ will ensure that the very best in terms of performance, safety, and durability is achieved by all participants in structural glazing projects," said Axel Giesecke, market segment leader EMEA, commercial glazing and façade systems.

According to the company, Quality Bond participants will benefit from Dow Corning's active support in implementing strict quality control and quality assurance regimes, testing and extended project warranties. Quality Bond will also enhance knowledge transfer by linking partners throughout the value chain, providing architects and consultants with early-phase planning and project support.

Quality Bond participation is open to all. Dow Corning will provide members with referrals to other Quality Bond™ participants on request, bolstering their business-to-business marketing and networking efforts.

"Dow Corning has a 35-year history of pioneering structural glazing solutions worldwide," said Giesecke. "We are confident that Quality Bond will allow us to extend this outstanding track record, while helping architects, engineers and contractors meet new challenges in façade construction and design."
