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.
