Insulating Glass

It is particularly important within insulating glass units (IG), double or triple, that minimal levels of water vapour penetrate into the space between the panes and, in case of noble gas-filled units, the gas loss should be minimal, as stipulated in BS EN 1279. Sika offers a complete range for IG edge sealing including primary and secondary sealants, suitable for gas retention of 30+ years.

Structural Glazing

Structural Glazing (SG) modules are subject to extremely high stresses and weathering over many years. Furthermore, they permanently transfer the forces to the support structure. Sika’s range of high-modulus SG silicone adhesive sealants offer amazing properties for this purpose. Sika products meet the requirement of ETAG 002, the European Guidelines for Structural Glazing.
