Quanex Shares Latest IG Insights, Research Findings at IGMA Summer Technical Meetings

In an effort to educate window and door manufacturers about potential root causes of seal failures, Quanex Building Products’ Mike Burk, product sales specialist - Insulating Glass Systems, will present during the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) Summer Technical Meetings, August 7-10, Halifax, Nova Scotia.         “We want to share our insight with manufacturers and investigate seal and fog failures to help improve a unit’s overall performance,” Burk said. “For example, we’ll examine and explore some of the common symptoms of units that failed ASTM 2189 and CGSB 12.8.

We want to provide an overall performance picture for manufacturers, so they can choose the best configurations for a particular environment.” 

Burk will give his presentation, “In-House Testing for Manufacturers,” on August 9 during the conference. For more information and to register, visit www.igmaonline.org and click on “Upcoming Events.” The conference will focus on insulating glass quality and testing, featuring perspectives from the top minds within the IG industry.
