| The present work uses non-linear material laws for FEA and exhibits the behavior of the sealant joint in various load scenarios on several projects.
| This paper focusses on the special glass part of the façade that covers both the ground floor as well as the first floor with a total height of 8.5 m and width of 6.5 m.
| This case study describes the façade performance of the 2nd tallest building in China, the Ping An International Finance Center (Ping An IFC), located in the city of Shenzhen.
| In this paper the mechanical and application properties of Sikaflex®-268, a high performance polyurethane adhesive are presented and compared to Sikasil® SG-500, a typical silicone adhesive used for structural glazing applications in facades.
| The structural sealant glazing (SSG) system was adopted in numerous skyscrapers glass facades since the mid 1980’s in Japan.
| Silicone sealants have been applied for more than 40 years to structurally bond glass onto steel or aluminium frames. One of the reasons is the unique resistance to weathering in normal assembly situations.
| In this paper, an advanced calculation method developed by Sika is presented to design SSG joints exposed to any kind of stress (tensile, shear and bending).
| Today, when energy efficiency is more important than ever, it’s a good time to speak about insulating glass spacers.
| Use of cold-bent and warped glass units in unitized curtain walling has been getting a state-of-the-art application for the last years.
| New solutions for edge-enameling of sputter coatings. System TEA is a specific ceramic paint application, jointly developed with the enamel manufacturer Ferro, for the combination with Guardian sputter-coated architectural glass.
| The paper discusses some essential findings of two recent research studies on the durability and service life of structural silicone glazing sealants and structures.
| Durability Testing Under Climatic Influences and Mechanical Loads
| In 2015 a pavilion mainly built of glass was finished. The building contractors themselves planned it as a transparent extension of their detached house to the garden.
| The need for higher transparency in façades has led to the development of jumbosized glass. Until now, the almost jointless appearance of large-scale glazing could only be reached with laminated safety glass.
| Use of cold-bent and warped glass units in unitized curtain walling is a state-of-the art application.
| This article has been first published at Glass Performance Days 26-29 June 2019 in Finland. The use of load-bearing adhesive joints in the glass structures have been in the focus of research throughout the last years.
| The compatibility of two or more materials consists in their capacity to co-exist in juxtaposition for an indeterminate period of time without manifesting signs of detachment (delamination), discoloration or alterations produced by chemical interactions.
| Condensation, and in very cold scenarios, ice can form on the external pane of some modern glass units.
| The innovative FINSTRAL window wall system meets demanding requirements – constantly flexible, always individual
| glassonweb.com contacted the major players in the flat glass industry, asking for their statements regarding the Brexit vote results and how they see it affecting the near future of the European glass and construction markets.
| In recent years the growing energy costs and the imposition of increasingly stringent limits to the gaseous emissions into the atmosphere have put a strong pressure on the glassmaking industry to research new solutions to improve the efficiency and ecological sustainability.
| FINSTRAL is a company group with its headquarters in Bolzano (IT) and occupies a successful niche in developing high quality doors and windows, as well as glass fittings.
| The visually stunning cable-stayed glass facade that surrounds the recently-opened Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena, Italy, is another outstanding demonstration of the qualities and capabilities of SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayer.
| Differently from traditional structural materials, the structural behaviour of laminated glasses exhibits some anomalies due to the difference in the stressstrain laws of their components: glass is a brittle material, while PVB and SGP are thermoplastic materials with a visco-elastic behaviour.
