Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) March 05, 2014
In 2013 AMPG was approached by CDC Curtainwall Design and Consulting group to prototype and help engineer a fastener for Dow Corning’s building solutions unit. This particular fastener works in conjunction with a structural adhesive. It was designed for use in glazing and curtain wall applications where no hole would be drilled through the glass. The structural members are glued to the glass instead of fastened through it.
The bottom side of the button is glued to the face of a glass panel at the glass manufacturers plant. The bolt is then placed into the bottom and the top half screwed into the bottom half at the job site. The bolt would be able to rotate in the button to attach to a support frame. This is for free flow artistic glass panel designs.
The adhesive used in this particular application was Dow Corning's TSSA. Due to it’s high design strength, Dow Corning TSSA permits small point fixations. From the outside, only the stainless steel standoffs are visible as the silicone film is transparent. TSSA enables crystal clear bonding for sleek and flush glass facades.
