Dow Corning’s show participation includes a live demonstration by Americas Technical Professional Brent Dull, showing the ease with which the high-performance Dow Corning® Silicone Air Barrier System can be installed. The demonstration features Dow Corning® DefendAir 200, along with other system components, including Dow Corning® 778 Silicone Liquid Flashing, the Dow Corning® Silicone Transition System and select Dow Corning® brand high-performance sealants.

“The Dow Corning® Silicone Air Barrier System, which is the market’s only silicone air barrier complemented by a suite of compatible products, is very easy to install,” said Americas Marketing Manager Jim Stange. “Because the materials are compatible, contractors don’t need to worry about sequencing, giving them flexibility to prevent issues with equipment availability and scheduling resources.”

Dow Corning experts are available to discuss the proven performance of the Dow Corning Silicone Air Barrier System, which was recently used to Build a Better Barrier™ at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington, to help meet ambitious thermal management goals.

In addition to the air barrier system, Dow Corning showcases other innovations for sustainable construction, including Dow Corning® 121 Structural Glazing Sealant, a fast-curing, 1:1 mix ratio structural glazing sealant that improves productivity both in-shop and on-site, and Dow Corning® HPI-1000 Building Insulation Blanket, a high-performance insulation material that expands design freedom and minimizes losses from thermal bridging.
