Super Spacer Premium Continues to Deliver Proven Performance

ADVERTISEMENT Even after 30 plus years on the market, Quanex’s Super Spacer® Premium warm edge spacer continues to stand up to the toughest demands for insulating glass (IG) production. The silicone based, all-foam formula offers manufacturers a premium energy-efficient and sustainable solution for high-volume production of dual- and triple-pane IG. As a true dual seal warm edge spacer line, Super Spacer Premium uses a high performing acrylic adhesive for its structural seal and is backed by a moisture vapor seal for maximum insulation properties. Adding a required hot-melt butyl or comparable low permeable sealant results in an unbelievably durable double seal that provides for amazingly consistent seal quality.

Thermal break profiles

Ensinger - insulbar thermal break profiles are a vital component of modern window, door or façade systems made of metal. They eliminate thermal bridging between interior and exterior surfaces, improving overall performance of the system and reducing energy loss, according to company officials. The insulating profiles are available in many shapes, sizes and materials to meet even the most complex requirements.

Warm-edge spacer

H.B. Fuller’s Ködispace 4SG warm-edge spacer system is a solution for both commercial and residential applications. The product’s formulation chemically bonds to glass and silicone secondary sealant. There is no spacer migration, and it has a higher temperature stability than standard insulating glass with polyisobutylene, in addition to an increased resistance to incompatible glazing conditions, say officials. The product is currently the only reactive thermoplastic spacer system available, officials say.

Foam spacer

A flexible, silicone foam spacer product, Super Spacer provides the maximum perimeter insulation for sealed glazing units and prevents condensation. Desiccant-filled with pre-applied side adhesive, the structural foam spacer significantly simplifies insulating glass production, say officials. Featuring a vapor barrier backing, the product must be used in combination with conventional IG sealants such as hot melt butyl, polyurethane and solvent-free polysulfide. Dual seal equivalent sealants may also be used.

Residential glass

Guardian's ClimaGuard 70 has a visible light transmission of 69 percent and solar heat gain of 0.35. ClimaGuard 55 has a visible light transmission of 55 percent and a lower glare aesthetic. To further support its residential manufacturers, Guardian Glass recently launched the new Guardian Residential Glass Customizer website, a tool for manufacturers to connect with homeowners to help them understand glass performance. The site will funnel potential customers to the sales teams of our manufacturer partners.
