Created especially for glazing rabbet profile design windows.

NovaFlex Beaded Glazing/Bedding Compound is a patented translucent paste combining oxime-cure silicone with consistently sized spacer-beads to provide a “liquid shim”, assuring precise compound thickness between glass and sash.

  • “Liquid Shim” effect minimizes squeeze out and controls sealant thickness
  • Complements most glazing rabbet designs
  • Primer-less adhesion to most substrates including wood, PVC, fiberglass, and aluminum
  • Made in USA
  • Proposition 65
  • Sulphur Free
  • UV Resistant
  • VOC Compliant
  • AAMA
How to Buy
 
  • Details

    With NovaFlex Beaded Glazing/Bedding Compound, the beads assure controlled compound thickness between the glass and the sash, maximizing sash performance while minimizing sealant consumption. Spacer-beads support the glass and maintain uniform glazing depth during cure for tighter manufacturing tolerances, higher quality, and fewer warranty claims. It also eliminates squeeze out, which provides for easier re-glazing.

    You can tailor your Beaded Glazing/Bedding Compound with a specific spacer-bead size, and your choice of cure rate, viscosity, green strength, physical properties, and color.

    Our standard bead sizes are:

    • SBC 30 = 0.025″ – 0.035″
    • SBC 40 = 0.035″ – 0.045″
    • SBC 50 = 0.045″ – 0.055″

    Meets or exceeds the performance of characteristics of AAMA 802.3 Type II, AAMA 803.3 Type I, and AAMA 805.2 Group C.
