RE: Structural Silicone

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm sorry for the delay in responding to you.  First, I need to explain
that while I work for Dow Corning Corporation, I am part of the group
that designs our chemical plants.  Therefore, I do not work hands on
with the silicone sealants.  I do spec them as part of my work, but
since we do not design high rises, I can't speak to your question.

I do know the person who is part of the Technical Service and
Development team for our sealants.  His name is Scott Waechter and his
phone number is (517) 496-3475 (which is a Midland, Michigan phone
number).  I'm sorry but I do not have an e-mail address for him that you
can respond to.  I have discussed your question with him and he is more
than willing to try to help you.

Please give him a call.  I hope this helps.

Dave

I just tried as you said and got only generic information. I wonder if I
could e-mail somebody at Dow Corning to get the information I need.

Thanks
