Edgetech IG Announces Plans to Launch Structural Glazing Spacer at glasstec 2004

Edgetech IG Inc. has announced it will launch a new spacer designed for structural glazing during glasstec 2004 (taking place November 9-13 in Düsseldorf, Germany). The company says the new Super Spacer® TriSeal™ features the TrueWarm® No Metal technology, and provides thermal performance and condensation resistance. TriSeal can be used with both structural and captive glazing applications, and is compatible with silicone structural sealants, as well as secondary sealants for captive glass, such as polyurethane, polysulfide, DSE/DSA's or hot melt butyls.

Like other Super Spacer products, TriSeal consists of the same desiccated silicone foam material, acrylic adhesive to hold the spacer in place on the glass and multi-layer vapor barrier. The company adds that TriSeal provides ultraviolet resistance, extreme temperature performance, fast dew-point drop, compression-set resistance, color stability and enhanced sound dampening.

In addition, the spacer's triple-seal design incorporates an inner acrylic adhesive seal for immediate unit handling, captive polyisobutylene primary seal for enhanced gas retention and low-moisture vapor transmission. It also features an outer structural seal for structural glazing performance.
