Product enhancements help customers achieve lowered U-values and improved condensation resistance As the industry continues to seek optimal energy efficiency and sustainability to meet increasingly stringent standards, Edgetech I.

G. has announced enhancements to its already industry-leading Super Spacer® products that provide lowered U-values and improved condensation resistance.These enhancements are incorporated into Super Spacer Standard, Premium, Premium Plus, nXt™ and TriSeal™.
“The enhanced products are already being shipped, and customers can expect to receive the immediate benefits without having to recertify their IG,” said Larry Johnson, executive vice president, Edgetech I.G. “It’s just another way Edgetech is helping customers meet the new ENERGY STAR® requirements and take advantage of the flurry of activity surrounding the tax credit for energy-efficient home improvements.”
According to third-party testing, the entire Super Spacer product line now offers up to 36 percent lower thermal conductivity numbers, providing the warmest edge of glass available. The lowered thermal conductivity numbers also translate to improved condensation resistance, which reduces the risk of mold in the home and contributes to the overall durability and sustainability of IG.
“Super Spacer products have always offered provided superior energy efficiency and long-term durability,” Johnson said. “From our Standard and Premium Plus products to nXt, customers can be assured their products will meet and exceed today’s requirements.”
The new thermal conductivity numbers are now included in the NFRC 101 Appendix C “Manufacturer Specific Thermophysical Property Values of Materials” available at www.nfrc.org. A comparative chart is also available at www.edgetech360.com.
