Edgetech Named Exclusive Distributor of Sparklike's
IG Testing Technologies
February 23, 2010
I.G. in Cambridge, Ohio, has entered into an agreement with Helsinki,
Finland-based Sparklike Ltd. to be the exclusive distributor for
the Gasglass argon and krypton gas detector and Spyglass glass analyzer
in the Americas, Europe and Australia.
Sparklike's device is the first device to enable testing of gas
fill levels without compromising the integrity of the IG unit.
"The collaboration with Edgetech will support the mission and
business idea of Sparklike perfectly as both companies aim to provide
the glass and window industry with high technology tools and solutions,
helping them to produce energy efficient products," says Erno
Launo, the managing director of Sparklike Ltd.
"Our relationship with Sparklike is an exciting endeavor for
Edgetech that brings this cutting-edge product to the global marketplace,"
adds Larry Johnson, executive vice president of Edgetech I.G. "The
Gasglass technology for gas measure is the first non-invasive way
of measuring the argon and krypton fill level of insulating glass
units. It can be used to test both initial fill and the retention
of insulating gases in a unit over time."
Through its relationship with Sparklike, Edgetech will also offer
the new Spyglass technology, a laser-based glass lite analyzer that
allows users to perform measurements to determine IG thickness,
configuration of lites and detect low-E coatings and laminations.
