  • Silicone durability – Exhibits excellent long term resistance
  • Stable consistency (uncured state) – Supplied as a light-weight paste the consistency of which remains relatively unchanged over a wide temperature range
  • Thermal stability (cured state) – Once cured, the material remains flexible over a temperature range of -48°C to 121°C
  • Primerless adhesion – bonds to most conventional substrates and finishes
  • Low sag or slump – which may be used for application to horizontal, vertical, or overhead surfaces
  • High tensile strength – increase safety factors in SSG designs
  • High tear strength – useful in Protective Glazing applications
  • Extended work life – to allow the user sufficient time for tooling and placement
  • Packaging – 600 ml sausage

Basic Uses

  • Ultraglaze SSG4000 is an excellent material of choice for factory glazing of unitized curtainwall systems or in field constructed stick curtainwall systems
  • Ultraglaze SSG4000 can also be used as a weatherseal product, when movement expected in the joint does not exceed its movement capability (±25%)
  • Ultraglaze SSG4000 has been validated in designs as an appropriate candidate for use in protective glazing applications.
  • Ultraglaze SSG4000 is useful in panel stiffener applications.
