New Delhi: The US-based Dow Corning - one of the leading global players in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation - is expanding its India operations with the opening of the Sahayog Building Solutions Centre in New Delhi. Dedicated to providing technical support and customer service, specialists at this new centre will collaborate with construction industry professionals, providing project support, technical training and skill-building workshops. A primary focus will be on the performance, safety and durability of buildings constructed using Dow Corning silicone materials in a range of everyday and specialist applications in new and renovation projects.
Visitors to Sahayog will also be able to see first-hand the company’s range of high performance building solutions, including their most recent innovations in silicone technology, some of which were used in the construction of this purpose-built facility. One such example is Dow Corning Transparent Structural Silicone Sealant (TSSA), which enhances the benefits of point-fixed architectural glass by bonding the bolts which secure the glazing in place using a high-strength silicone film. This material allows insulating glass, coloured glass surfaces or functional coating facade skins to be installed without breaching the cavity of the glass and comprising the integrity of the facade.
"Our mission is to provide our customers with leading innovation and best-in-class services to ensure that their experience is remarkable. We are very excited about the latest solutions centre launch in Delhi and look forward to a long-term association with our stakeholders in this market,” said Jean-Paul Hautekeer, global HPB marketing director, Dow Corning.
The Sahayog Building Solutions Centre will also provide access to Dow Corning’s Quality Bond program, which lifts standards of sealing and bonding to the highest possible level by implementing standards of best practice in quality control, quality assurance and production application with specialist silicone applicators.
“Dow Corning first set up dedicated operations in India in 2000 to better serve a multi-industry customer base that has been using Dow Corning products for more than 30 years. This new solutions centre, which will be operated in partnership with Silicone Concepts, reinforces the company’s commitment to the Indian market and to its customers success,” said Basab Saha, marketing manager - high performance building solutions, Dow Corning South Asia.
