DOWSIL™ 795 Silicone Building Sealant is a one-part, neutral-cure, architectural-grade sealant that easily extrudes in any weather and cures quickly at room temperature. This cold-applied, non-sagging silicone material cures to a medium modulus silicone rubber upon exposure to atmospheric moisture. The cured sealant is durable and flexible enough to accommodate ± 50 percent movement of original joint dimension when installed in a properly designed weather seal joint. In a properly designed structurally glazed joint, the sealant is strong enough to support glass and other panel materials under high wind load.

How to Use

Please consult the Dow Americas Technical Manual, Form No. 62-1112, for detailed information on state-of-the-art application methods and joint design.

Clean all joints, removing all foreign matter and contaminants such as grease, oil, dust, water, frost, surface dirt, old sealants or glazing compounds and protective coatings.

Application Method
Install backing material or joint filler, setting blocks, spacer shims and tapes. Mask areas adjacent to joints to ensure neat sealant lines. Primer is generally not required on nonporous surfaces, but may be necessary for optimal sealing of certain porous surfaces. A test placement is always recommended. Apply DOWSIL™ 795 Silicone Building Sealant in a continuous operation using positive pressure. (The sealant can be applied using many types of air-operated guns and most types of bulk dispensing equipment.) Before a skin forms (typically within 15 minutes), tool the sealant with light pressure to spread the sealant against the backing material and joint surfaces. Remove masking tape as soon as the bead is tooled.
