Tracy Rogers to present paper on the effects of condensation in fenestration According to Tracy Rogers, technical director for Edgetech I.G., condensation is the third thermal performance parameter alongside U-factor Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).

In his Glass Processing Days (GPD) China presentation, Rogers will cover health concerns and the effects of condensation on the integrity and long-term performance of fenestration systems. This year’s GPD conference, to be held June 2-3, 2010 in Beijing, will focus on challenges and solutions facing architectural glass and solar applications.

Rogers’ technical paper titled “Considerations for the Condensation Resistance of Fenestration Assemblies” provides an in-depth look at U-factor and condensation resistance basics, system ratings for thermal performance and the relative effects of U-factor and condensation resistance using third-party data.

“Performance factors that may have a minimal impact on U-factor and/or SHGC may be critical in the prevention of condensation formation that may, if not controlled, lead to health concerns and building component or system damage,” Rogers said. “At GPD China, I will compare the difference between the performance of fenestration products relative to U-factor and condensation resistance and outline principal design features to improve the latter.”

According to third-party, independent testing, Edgetech’s Super Spacer® provides the leading condensation resistance of any spacer in North America – up to 131 percent better than metal bar.
