#1 Global Supplier in Insulating Glass
For over 50 years, KÖMMERLING has stood for quality, innovation and application expertise in the market for insulating glass sealants and today stands as the #1 supplier of insulating glass sealants worldwide.

In 1956, the glass industry began to demand advanced sealants to complement adhesive technologies and enable enhanced product performance. KÖMMERLING grew rapidly by leading technical development and innovation in sealant applications for the insulating glass market.

A major breakthrough occurred in 1969, with KÖMMERLING's development of the first primerless, polysulfide-based, dual-component sealant. A further milestone in the history of insulating glass followed some 15 years later, with the company's introduction of the first low-viscosity polysulfide formulation for automated glass sealing systems.

KÖMMERLING’s continuing efforts towards development and innovation are today reflected in a highly diverse range of products, which are tailored to satisfy the application-specific requirements of our customers. KÖMMERLING insulating glass sealants are currently sold in more than 80 countries worldwide. The manufacturing quality, service and application expertise we bring to the market are rewarded by the loyalty of our customers.

Commitment to Quality
In 1995, KÖMMERLING became one of the first manufacturers of adhesives and sealants to be advanced ISO 9001 quality management certification. The company became a member of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) 1998.

KÖMMERLING has continuously extended it's management systems, adding capabilities in the area of environmental management and occupational health and safety. This expanded management system was certified by the TÜV Rheinland technical inspection agency in 2005, making KÖMMERLING one of the few adhesive and sealant manufacturers worldwide to meet all requirements of the DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 (quality management), DIN EN ISO 14001:2004 (environmental management) and OHSAS 18001 (occupational health and safety management) standards and to receive the corresponding certifications.
