For third straight year, NovaFlex Qwik-Set Glazing Sealant wins DWM Readers’ Choice Award

Door and Window Market [DWM] magazine, a publication that exclusively covers the door and window industry, recently announced the 2023 winners of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards. Novagard’s NovaFlex Qwik-Set Portable Adhesive & Glazing Sealant was selected by its readers as their top choice in the Seals and Sealants category. Qwik-Set was also awarded this honor in 2021 and 2022.

“Year after year, it seems that Novagard finds a way to earn the most votes among seals and sealants,” said DWM magazine. “This year, a portable version got readers’ attention by making hand glazing and field installations faster.”


NovaFlex Qwik-Set Glazing Sealant reduces the total cost of manufacturing by enabling assemblies to move down the line within minutes of application without silicone transfer or glass shifting. By rapidly building adhesive and elastomeric strength in bedding and glazing applications, this innovative silicone sealant is helping manufacturers maximize production.

Novagard’s portable version is especially useful in tight spots and for field repairs. This fixed 2:1 ratio is packaged in a dual cartridge and provides a rapid cure with a 10 – 15 minute snap time. Portable Qwik-Set can be easily applied using a battery operated or pneumatic gun for quick repairs in the field or where glazing tables aren’t an option.

“We’re excited that DWM readers once again picked our Qwik-Set as their top choice in the sealants category,” said Joe Borak, Senior Vice President of Sales at Novagard. “Giving contractors and installers a portable version of Qwik-Set helps reduce warranty claims by making critical field installations and repairs quick and easy.

Novagard’s portable Qwik-Set silicone sealant achieves a tensile strength of over 15 psi after just 20 minutes (and 55 psi after 30 minutes), much quicker than other sealants on the market today.
