TriSeal from Edgetech Obtains EN1279 Certification

Edgetech I.G., of Cambridge, Ohio, has announced that its Super Spacer® TriSeal™ has passed requirements outlined by the European testing standards EN1279-3, according to the final report by ift Rosenheim.

Super Spacer TriSeal, according to Edgetech, is one of the world's few Warm Edge spacer systems to pass EN1279-3, a stringent long-term gas loss test, with silicone as the secondary sealant. Having passed the requirements, TriSeal joins the ranks of Super Spacer Standard and Premium, which obtained EN1279-2, 3 and 6 last year, according to the final report by the Dutch test institute TNO-TPD.

Super Spacer TriSeal features TrueWARM® no-metal technology. It consists of a desiccated silicone foam material, acrylic adhesive to hold the spacer in place on the glass and multi-layer vapor barrier. According to the company, its 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, as well as an outer structural seal for structural glazing performance.
