Researchers from the US, Asia, and Europe address topics in building sealant durability, such as insulating glass unit
seal and flexible spacer displacement failures; the formulation of sealants; structural sealant laboratory test methods and structural test methods for full-scale curtain-wall mockups; reliability assessment of structural sealant durability; four-sided structural sealant glazing systems; performance factors; weathering and construction sealants; anti-fungal durability evaluation of a sanitary sealant; adhesive bonding technology; prolonging the working life of sealed exterior building joints; and other topics.
For example, slightly thicker glazing and an insulating glass unit
(IGU) cavity results in improved acoustic performance.
RavenBrick has developed a prototype of RavenSkin using their patented RavenWindow thermochromic filter, phase change material and a triple pane insulating glass unit
"Every window and door was finished with Crystal's standard high-performance, environmentally sustainable AAMA 2604 powder coat paint and each insulating glass unit
incorporated energy performance enhancing low-E coatings and argon gas filling.
A[cedilla] North America -- Canadian-based Unicel Architecture will be showcasing its new product, Vision Control Mini, which is a 1" airspace louvered insulating glass unit
, ideal for door insertions.
Heat Mirror has low emissivity and solar reflective film inside of an insulating glass unit
. The company says that the product does not have the weight disadvantage of a third pane of glass nor does it reduce light transmission.
When a nonmetallic material is used as a thermal separator, less heat or cold will pass from one side of the glass unit to the other, especially at the edge zones, when compared to an insulating glass unit
with a metallic spacer.
It has a flexible and hollow non-metallic tube design, which allows air to act as an around the edges of the insulating glass unit
The windows boast a 3-3/8" frame depth and 1" overall insulating glass unit
, offering superior energy efficiency and sound control properties.
3 REMOVE THE OLD GASKET and wrap it around the edges of the new insulating glass unit
. Then push the frame pieces back together around the gasket, tapping it tight with a hammer if necessary.
Walker Glass with AviProtek patterns can be manufactured with Solarban 60 or Solarban 70XL glass on the second (interior) surface of an insulating glass unit
Low-emittance coatings and an insulating glass unit
configuration can be used to reduce heat transfer from this absorptive glazing layer to the interior.
