  • Strength properties – combining high tensile strength, high tear strength, and the capacity to absorb high deformations (elongation), SSG4600 is an exceptional choice for many protective glazing and seismic applications.
  • Movement capability – once cured, silicone exhibits +/- 25% movement in both extension and compression, capable of withstanding daily exposure to various weather conditions.
  • Silicone durability – once cured, silicone exhibits excellent long-term resistance to natural weathering, including: extreme temperatures, ultraviolet radiation, and precipitation, with negligible change in elasticity.
  • Adhesion – SSG4600 features primerless adhesion to most nonporous construction materials, eliminating the risks associated with improper primer application, including inconsistent adhesion resulting from improper primer application. SSG4600 also reduces costs associated with primer and subsequent labor. It can be used with many substrates and finishes, including: glass, polycarbonate, coated and anodized aluminum, and ceramic frits.


  • Rapid adhesion build – SSG4600's work life is adjustable from 20 to 60 minutes and typical unit handling time is four hours, allowing expedited fabrication and production of units to meet demanding project timelines or alleviate shop capacity constraints.
  • Adjustable work life – SSG4600 offers the widest mixing ratio range available in our product family. The SSG4600 mix ratio of base and catalyst can be adjusted to suit the project or climate, as the cure speed can be increased or decreased, allowing flexibility in application.
  • Low pumping pressure – The consistency of SSG4600 is such that it can flow easily through pumps, allowing for longer pump life and reduced maintenance on equipment. The consistency also allows for a higher application rate, providing a faster and more thorough joint filling capability – even in deep SSG cavities and corners – with easier tooling effort, ultimately helping improve throughput and operational efficiency.


  • Color assortment – available in black and grey.
