Edgetech's Technical Director to Present at GPD 2007
In his presentation titled "Protecting Exterior Fenestration
and Glazing Surfaces with Applied Coatings," Tracy Rogers,
technical director for Edgetech I.G., will discuss new construction
debris problems, methods for reducing damage to the fenestration/glazing
system, and present a case study on the subject in his presentation
at Glass Processing Days (GPD) 2007 in Tampere, Finland, June 15
Rogers will discuss the various protection methods for exterior
fenestration and glazing system surfaces and evidence about the
effectiveness of each.
"The construction process results in a variety of materials
being inadvertently splashed, spattered and sprayed on the system,"
Rogers said. "Once construction is complete, all debris must
be removed through a once arduous process, requiring harsh chemicals,
brushes and razor scrapers. Today, we have found that the key to
easy dirt and debris removal is protecting surfaces from the beginning
with a pre-applied film barrier or coating."
