On display at the Bystronic Glass stand will be a TPS® applicator in operation with Butylver TPS, the thermoplastic spacer engineered by the Fenzi experts as a perfect match for the Bystronic Glass applicators.Visitors will have the opportunity to see a live demonstration of spacer profile application – a highly-automated and super-fast process that allows Butylver TPS to be applied by the machine directly to the glass, eliminating the need for a separate step. Developed in Italy and distributed around the world through the Glass Alliance network, Butylver TPS is a next-generation, single component, thermoplastic PIB-based spacer with incorporated desiccants that ensures perfect adherence, minimal permeability, excellent rigidity and stability, all properties that make Butylver TPS increasingly popular in the warm edge systems market.
A custom-designed stand shared by the two companies will, instead, focus on application of the FGS (Flexible Glass Spacer), the innovative, flexible, olefin-based warm edge profile from the prominent Glass Alliance family. Thanks to its low thermal transmittance coefficient, FGS is especially competitive in terms of ensuring extremely limited heat loss and greater in-home comfort. FGS also makes it possible to achieve significant improvements in simplification and automation of the production process by ensuring the highest degree of dimensional tolerance, allowing for extreme accuracy and ease of assembly, qualities that are especially useful in the manufacture of triple glazed IG units, a feat attendees to Glasstec 2014 will be able to see in person.
