Sika Corporation, supplier of glass bonding solutions, has announced its participation as an exhibitor at Glass Expo Pacific Northwest™ (GEPN) ’18, May 30th – June 1st at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue, in Bellevue, Wash.

Sika will showcase its full line of vertical glass silicone and polyurethane sealants and adhesives at this year’s show. These products are ideal for facades, doors and windows and small commercial and residential flat glass applications.

One product of note available in the vertical glass product offering is SikaGlaze GG-735 for embedding glass walls and balustrades. This solvent-free, self-leveling, two-part polyurethane grout is easy to mix and cures at room temperature. It also delivers high strength for fixation of large panels.

Additionally, Sika’s vertical glass business unit will feature its full line of Sikasil engineered structural silicone solutions for manufacturing, field construction and installation of commercial glass facades. Sika will also exhibit high performing residential hurricane-rated impact and general window back bedding glazing products, as well as its full line of installation sealants and adhesives.

“Sika is excited about the expansion of our vertical glass product range and engineering services for the facades, fenestration and insulating glass industry as well as our flat glass business,” says John Babun, national manager/vertical glass. “Our comprehensive range of engineered structural and general purpose silicone products – along with our already-recognized residential window glazing and installation product line – strengthens Sika’s global leadership in glass sealing and bonding.”

Additionally, Sika’s business development manager, Florian Doebbel, will present on “Structural Silicone Applications – Trends in Glass Bonding.” The presentation will highlight impacts on insulating glass, structural glazing and glass composites. Opportunities and challenges will be discussed based on projects showing practical impacts on engineering and aesthetics.

“Florian recently joined Sika Corp as the business development manager after spending the last seven years working for Sika AG as their corporate market field engineer focusing on facades and insulating glass,” says Babun.

Sika Corporation will be exhibiting at booth #413. For further information, visit usglassmag.com/gepn/.
