Like a symphony, it takes a lot of people working together to develop a standard.
Elkem Silicones participated in the 42nd meeting of the Buildings and Civil engineering Works– Sealants committee, together with major sealant competitors (Dow, Momentive) and customers as well as testing laboratories. During 3 days at the BSI (British Standards Institute), this committee of experts worked on improving existing standards and creating new ones for building applications, taking into account new sealant technologies and high performance requirements of modern buildings.
