WOOD – GLASS – WINDOW Sealing and bonding of joints made from wood, glass, metal and PVC
Today, modern sealants and adhesives are an important component in the production and installation of construction elements. In addition to having excellent sealing and bonding properties, they also have to withstand physical and chemical stresses and meet legal norms and requirements. Bonding to the most varied of materials such as wood, metal, glass and plastic is always a major challenge.
The perfect finish for RC2 and bonded windows
Professional window bonding requires the following characteristics be present in sealants and adhesives:
- Temperature, humidity and UV-resistance
- Resistance to cleaning products
- Adhesion behaviour on various materials
- Static strength and design values
You can find further information about this in the advice booklet "Bonded windows perfectly manufactured"

Seal and bond timber-glass-composite elements
Innovative timber-glass-composite elements for façades give builders, planners and trades companies completely new perspectives in terms of aesthetics, energy efficiency and quick installation. As a statically effective composite, the insulating glass panes are bonded to couplers and these are screwed directly to the post-and-beam sub-structure – without additional frames or irritating aluminium panels.
