Dow Corning

The Trusted Choice

Our Dow Corning® silicone sealant anchors the protective window film securely to the window frame. The triangular glazing joint provides a sealant bite of 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch, effectively reinforcing the window film and the framing member. This proven joint design has successfully withstood rigorous tests for high-performance window film applications.

Dow Corning silicone sealants are renowned for their exceptional properties. With high tensile and tear strength, long-term flexibility, resistance to harsh weather conditions, temperature extremes, and ultraviolet light, as well as excellent adhesion to glass and most window frame materials, they ensure reliable performance. Our recommended products, Dow Corning® 995 Structural Silicone Sealant and Dow Corning® 983 Silicone Glazing and Curtainwall Adhesive/Sealant, originally designed for structural glazing, have found their application in impact-resistant window systems. These sealants offer positive adhesion even when window frames undergo bending and twisting, making them the anchors of choice for the most advanced impact-resistant window systems in the industry.

3M™ Impact Protection Adhesive

Unmatched Performance Experience

Unmatched protection with our 3M™ Impact Protection Adhesive. This unique adhesive is applied around the window frame, effectively bonding the glass, window film, and frame together. It provides enhanced defense against severe weather damage, bomb blasts, and potential intruders. Designed to complement 3M™ Ultra Safety and Security Window Films, this adhesive offers homeowners and commercial building owners a wide range of protection options.

As a leader in adhesive technology, 3M stands out by manufacturing its own adhesives. Our Impact Protection Adhesive sets itself apart from the competition with its fast curing time, fully curing in less than seven days. With superior tear strength, elongation, and tensile strength compared to commonly used attachment adhesives, it ensures robust and reliable performance. Available in black and white options, this adhesive seamlessly integrates into any window design.

3M™ Impact Protection Profile

The Perfect Blend of Security and Aesthetics

Our 3M™ Impact Protection Profile features an ingenious system that combines a flexible, gasket-style attachment with 3M™ VHB™ Tape to lock the window film and frame together. Offering the same benefits as the Impact Protection Adhesive, this profile adds a clean, factory-finished appearance to your windows.

With its easy adaptability to most window frames, the Impact Protection Profile can often be installed without cutting existing gaskets. It’s a versatile solution that can be retrofitted to existing safety film applications, providing increased protection. Available in black for commercial applications and white for residential use, this profile not only enhances security but also elevates the aesthetic appeal of your windows.

Framelok & Anglelok Systems

Uncompromising Strength

Our Framelok and Anglelok systems offer a retrofit solution that utilizes a high bonding adhesive system. These rigid edge-retention systems are designed to evenly absorb and transfer impact loads, effectively retaining glass fragments and reducing the likelihood of injury. Whether you’re concerned about break-ins, security threats, or blast mitigation, our Framelok and Anglelok systems, in conjunction with our safety films or existing compliant safety film installations, provide resistance against repeated attacks. You can trust their reliability even in the face of unexpected spontaneous glass failure or windborne debris caused by natural disasters.
