Glass Industry News

Celebrating 25 years of knowledge Sharing and industry spirit

, Glass Performance Days (GPD)

‘If you are looking to expand your knowledge and business opportunities in the glass industry, nothing compares to GPD in Finland’, says Jean-Paul Hautekeer, Global Strategic Market Director for Building and Construction, Dow Consumer Solutions. ‘Following 25 years of success, GPD continues to encourage greater understanding and unity within the industry which can only be beneficial for better, more functional glass construction of the future’.

‘Dow Corning has been a long-term sponsor of GPD and has itself seen some radical changes in recent months.  Now a fully owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, the strategic fit and business synergies of the two companies are exciting, with the prospect of an increasingly broad, robust product offering bringing new elements for growth and innovation’ explained Jean-Paul.

At GPD, we will take the opportunity to introduce our extended range of silicones for crystal clear bonding for high strength, interior and exterior point fixation, structural assembly, two-sided clear insulating glass edge and weather sealing.  We will also highlight 50+ years of proven performance of silicone structural glazing with Dow Corning silicones and discover how the evolution of this architectural concept continues to excite architects by offering benefits that reach far beyond improved aesthetics’.
