(Midland, Michigan-AP) -- Dow Corning is being recognized for its role in replacing the Oklahoma City federal building that was bombed in 1995.

A sealant made by the Michigan company was used to anchor blast-resistant windows to the new building's frame.

The windows are similar to ones credited with saving lives at the Pentagon after the September-2001 terror attacks. The windows protected employees from flying glass and intense heat, smoke and fire.

The new structure in Oklahoma City replaces the ``Alfred P- Murrah'' federal building destroyed after the April-1995 bombing by Timothy Mc-Veigh and Michigan native Terry Nichols. The bombing killed 163-people.
