STRUCTURAL
Structural glazing is a method utilizing a silicone adhesive to attach glass, metal, or other panel material to the structure of a building. wind load and other impact loads on the façade are transferred from the glass or panel, through the structural silicone sealant to the structure of the building. The silicone sealant must maintain adhesive and cohesive integrity as the façade is subjected to wind load and thermal stresses. Structural glazing (SG) is a high performance application and not all silicone sealants are suitable for this application. only silicone sealants which have been developed and tested specifically for structural glazing applications should be used.
