Truseal Unveils Duralite™ High-Performance, No-Metal Spacer

Truseal Technologies Inc., a provider of warm edge spacer systems for insulating glass (IG), formally launched its third generation no-metal, high-performance warm edge spacer product at GlassBuild America. Truseal considers the Duralite™ spacer its most significant insulating glass product innovation since it introduced the Dura platform in 2001.

Duralite, which is commercially available now, will be presented for public display for the first time at Truseal's booth #1828 at GlassBuild America 2006, Sept. 19-21.

The patented Duralite design features a composite laminating technology without the use of metal, resulting in superior thermal and durability performance. The multilayer, highly efficient spacer uses proven components, sealants and desiccants to produce improved condensation resistance, a warmer edge of glass temperature, a smoother surface appearance and longer-lasting argon gas retention.

"Duralite is a premium spacer product that appeals to feature-oriented insulating glass producers whose brand images have been shaped by a track record of quality and performance," said Ric Jackson, director of marketing and business development, Truseal Technologies. "Duralite's technical performance in terms of low conductivity, argon permeability and U-value is unparalleled. At the same time, Duralite is simple to incorporate into existing automatic or manual application platforms and its flexibility enables it to be adaptable to any window design."

Duralite was designed for high-volume production of dual and triple pane insulating glass units in a one-step process where units are sealed using heat and compression. Although designed as a single seal system, Duralite can also be used with a secondary sealant to create a dual seal unit.
