J.E. Berkowitz (JEB), a premier architectural glass fabricator based in Pedricktown, New Jersey, will exhibit its new JEB 3Seal™ HM+ warm-edge insulating glass spacer system and glass fabrication capabilities at booth #1190 during the ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) 2017. The tradeshow will coincide with Greenbuild 2017 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, November 8–10.
Designed to meet the toughest commercial glazing demands, the JEB 3Seal HM+ spacer features triple-seal technology, including an improved secondary seal made out of high-modulus silicone, as well as a hot-applied captive polyisobutylene (PIB) primary seal and a pre-applied acrylic adhesive for spacer-to-glass bonding.
The high-modulus silicone secondary seal minimizes PIB migration, providing clear, straight sightlines. It also offers 35 percent higher design strength, allowing for a narrower air cavity in an IGU, and 10 percent more argon gas retention than standard sealants, based on ASTM 2190 testing.
An IGU incorporating the JEB 3Seal HM+ spacer will retain its argon gas longer over other insulating glass systems, maximizing energy savings and extending the unit’s service life.
Made from thermoset structural silicone with integral 3A desiccant, the JEB 3Seal HM+ spacer provides minimal thermal conductivity—allowing for higher edge-of-glass temperatures and better condensation resistance than traditional metal spacers.
With its T-shaped design, the JEB 3Seal HM+ spacer also offers shock-absorbing properties that counteract glazing stresses caused by wind loads, fluctuating temperatures, and barometric pressure.
