Seal the Deal – Dow Corning  
Booth 1040  
The 2400 Silicone Assembly Sealant from Dow Corning is a reactive hot-  
melt adhesive that’s ideal for both residential and commercial architecture  
windows, doors and skylights.  
The product was intended for dynamic weather-seals in back-bedding ap-  
plications. It’s appropriate for standard and impact glazing of most common  
fenestration materials and is compatible with standard hot-melt dispensing  
equipment, which includes bulk meters and XY glazing equipment.  
The clear, moisture-reactive sealant reduces creep compared with tradi-  
tional hot-melts. This 100-percent silicone product features ease of use, in-  
stant green strength and primer-less adhesion, says the company.

In addition, CrystalBlue is the  
company’s newest substrate for  
commercial applications. The light

When applied to performance-tinted

lated core and a customizable interior,  
the single-source panel allows users  
to keep the aesthetics of a glass ex-  
terior while maintaining high R-values.  
The panels are available with clear or tinted glass and any of the company’s  
standard or custom finish options on the interior.  
In addition, Mapes-R+ infill panels are for use in storefront and curtainwall  
applications. By rabbeting the interior edges of a thicker panel with additional  
insulation, previously unattainable R-values can be achieved without modifying  
the existing glazing pocket, according to the company.  
The panels are designed to fit any size glazing pocket and can increase  
R-values up to 300 percent. Values up to R=27 are now possible within a one-  
inch glazing pocket. Mapes-R+ panels can also be used in glazing pockets as  
small as ¼-inch for retrofit application.

glaziers are using a 9-foot body on a  
pickup chassis or distributors are de-  
livering insulating units on a 24-foot  
body, easy and quick access to the cen-  
ter racks may shorten delivery time  
and improve safety, according to the  
company. The steps are permanently  
in place,eliminating the time and need  
to pull out a ladder, ramp or staircase.  
Daylighting systems produced with Azon structural  
thermal barrier technologies—the MLPor Dual  
Cavity—for aluminum windows and curtain wall,  
along with high performanceglazing components  
for insulating glass, will yield a fenestration system  
capable of upholding the highest efficiency and  
sustainability standards  
These steps are full-sized, which can  
also make it safer to get a firm footing.  
Prior to this addition, the center  
space in the rear of the body had stor-  
age options.With the steps, storage op-  
tions are in the steps themselves.  
This new step system allows glass  
companies to customize a body to meet  
their exact needs.
