Beachwood, Ohio-based TruSeal Technologies Inc.'s Insuledge,
dual sealed with polysulfide, has passed the requirements outlined
by European testing standards EN1279-2, 3 and 6 according to the
final report by Dutch test institute TNO-TPD.
Insuledge is a warm-edge flexible spacer system for insulating
glass (IG) units. The hollow, non-metal spacer incorporates a
proprietary molding process, and its dual seal system allows Insuledge
to be dual sealed with most common structural and thermoplastic
IG secondary sealants.
"The warm-edge technology that we use in Insuledge gives
manufacturers a greater advantage with meeting European energy
conservation codes, such as Part L of U.K.'s Building Act,"
said August Coppola, president of TruSeal. "K-values are
reduced, limiting the amount of heat that is transferred through
the edge seal spacer system. We consider the EN1279 certification
a great step in better serving our European customers."
