Edgetech I.G. Inc.’s new TriSeal™ TrueWARM® Spacer System Obtains EN1279-2, 3 and 6 Certifications

Edgetech’s new Super Spacer TriSeal with TrueWARM NO-Metal technology, triple sealed with polyisobutylene and silicone, has passed the requirements outlined by European testing standards EN1279-2, 3 and 6 according to the final report by ift in Rosenheim.

Edgetech’s TriSeal TrueWARM spacer system works effectively with both structural and captive (fixed window) glazing applications, and is compatible with silicone structural sealant, as well as with other secondary sealants for captive glass including polyurethane, polysulfide, DSE/DSA’s or hot melt butyls.

Super Spacer TriSeal consists of desiccated silicone foam material, acrylic adhesive to hold the spacer in place on the glass, and multi-layer vapor barrier. As with all Super Spacer silicone foam spacers, TriSeal provides excellent UV resistance, extreme temperature performance, fast dew-point drop, superior compression-set resistance, excellent color stability and enhanced sound dampening.

Its unique triple-seal design incorporates an inner acrylic adhesive seal for immediate unit handling; captive polyisobutylene primary seal for enhanced gas retention and low-moisture vapor transmission; plus an outer structural seal for proven structural glazing performance.

Architects will appreciate TriSeal’s smooth matte black surface appearance, with no surface blistering or bubbling. (Other colors are available on special order.) Unlike some competitive warm edge spacers, TriSeal applies and stays in a straight line and forms sharp 90-degree corners.

Super Spacer TriSeal features a continuous vapor barrier backing across the profiled back of the spacer, and is engineered to accept all sealants.
In a recent independent test for total window performance, comparing TriSeal vs. aluminum spacer in a thermally broken aluminum test window, TriSeal:

•Lowered the Total Window U-Factor by over 5%.
•Raised the NFRC Condensation Resistance by over 10%.
•Raised the Sill Sightline Temperature by over 15%.

Edgetech IG Inc. produces Super Spacer, the world’s only TrueWARM, all-foam, NO Metal edge-seal product line that provides maximum condensation resistance, durability and energy performance.
