New ways to bond glass

A visitor from Switzerland discusses advances in laminar bonding.

March 23, 2016  By Dr. Werner Wagner

Werner Wagner of Sika will discuss the development of a composite product comprising a glass panel, a silicone adhesive layer and a load-transferring metal panel that allows the use of glass in overhead as well as vertical situations without any visible mechanical fixings, creating a large uniform opaque glass surface.

About the speaker:
Dr. Werner Wagner has been active in the glass and façade business for 20 years. With a chemical and technical background he has established the technical service of Wacker-Chemie (Germany) for façade projects and was also responsible for product development of silicone sealants and adhesives, gaining profound experience in project management and marketing. When Sika Switzerland acquired Wacker’s façade silicone business in March 2004, he joined Sika and is now not only responsible for the marketing department of Sika Façade Systems but also for the business development in the Chinese façade market. He is author of several papers about sealing and bonding in façades and has attended countless conferences as speaker and chairman.
