As architects and specifiers become increasingly aware of the part warm edge technology plays in energy efficiency, they will want assurance that their suppliers are manufacturing products that will retain their energy efficiency long-term.
Edgetech I.G. is is improving energy efficiency through warm edge technology,
so do not miss the chance to attend Gerhard Reichert’s presentation “Improving Long-term Energy Performance of Insulating Glass in Buildings” at the Glass Processing Days (GPD) 2007 Conference in Shanghai, China, May 14 – 15, 2007 and in Tampere, Finland, June 15 – 18, 2007. Reichert, Edgetech’s vice president of international business development, will discuss methods and trends for improving quality and energy efficiency of insulating glass units through automation – specifically focusing on just-in-time online automation of the butyl extrusion process.
“The quality of an insulating glass unit is a key factor in determining the life expectancy of a unit,” said Reichert. “It is well known that workmanship is one of the key considerations affecting quality and long-term durability of an insulating glass unit and that automation helps raise quality through consistency, and reduction of the human factor.”
