Put crystal clear structural silicones to work for you


Crystal Clear Bonding for POINT FIXED FACADES

Dow Corning® Transparent Structural Silicone Adhesive (TSSA) is a crystal clear silicone film adhesive, designed to bond metal point connectors to glass.  TSSA must be applied in factory. Our technical service personnel can assist you with a comprehensive engineering and start-up service.

Applications: Point fixed facades


  • Almost invisible attachment points, different shapes
  • High strength - 10 times higher design strength*
  • No glass drilling - no risk of gas loss from the
    insulating glass
  • UV resistant, color stable, elastic

* compared to conventional structural glazing silicone


Crystal Clear Bonding for POINT AND AREA LAMINATION

Dow Corning® Transparent Structural Silicone Laminate (TSSL) is a high strength silicone film developed for structural bonding and area lamination of glass and metal. Its elasticity and high strength make it ideal for structural connections where dynamic loads and vibrations, for example, have to be accommodated. TSSL must be applied in factory.

Applications: Point and area lamination for glass stairways, railings, glass fins, glass partitions, etc.


  • Almost invisible structural glass - metal connection
  • High strength – high elasticity
  • No glass drilling for pure glass aesthetics
  • UV resistant, color stable, elastic


Dow Corning® 2400 Silicone Assembly Sealant is a crystal clear, moisture curing reactive silicone hotmelt, engineered for structural bonding of glass designs to enhance aesthetics and performance. Its hotmelt properties provide immediate strength once cooled.

Applications: Specific structural glazing designs, general glass bonding and assembly, automated bonding processes:


  • Enhances productivity in factory bonding applications
  • High structural capability and elasticity  
  • Suitable for on-site assembly applications
  • UV resistant, color stable
