Akfix 917N INSULATING GLASS (IG) SILICONE SEALANT
One- part silicone sealant developed for use as a secondary sealant in a dual-sealed insulating glass unit. Insulating glass sealant can bond the individual components, forming a weather-resistant unit.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Excellent unprimed adhesion to glass and metal substrates, such as galvanized steel, stainless steel,
Single-component formulation minimizes waste and downtime by eliminating base purging and static mixer maintenance,
Consistently non-slump, permitting automated glazing,
Non-corrosive by products, Almost odorless fast curing formula,
Resistant to temperature extremes (-60 °C to +180 °C).
Primarily used as a secondary sealant in production of dual-sealed insulating glass unit production,
Insulating glass silicone sealant can be also recommended with insulating glass units incorporating specialty glass types.
Ensure that surfaces to be sealed are clean, dry and grease free.
The application temperature must be between +5 °C and +40 °C.
See table 1 for basic secondary sealant design,
To obtain optimum adhesion, joints should be tooled immediately after sealant application to ensure complete substrate contact.
Excess uncured sealant may be cleaned with solvent. Cured sealant can be removed barely mechanically.
