Rapid IGU Quality Assessment from IGCC

The Insulating Glass Certification Council, sponsor of the IGCC/IGMA certification program, North America's leading IG certification and quality assurance organization, is currently testing a pilot program that would enable IG manufacturers to provisionally certify their products in just 4 weeks.

The existing full certification takes an average of 24 weeks. 

Provisional certification would enable the manufacturer to sell a certified product pending the outcome of full ASTM tests.

The Provisional Certification (PC) Program was designed to assess the ability of a manufacturer to take an established type and arrangement of sealant(s) and components, and assemble them to a specified standard. The program was evaluated by a correlation study last year. This study compared the program’s pass/fail data to identical units that were evaluated to IGCC’s existing certification results with surprising precision.

The program utilizes the test methods outlined in ASTM E-2190 for the stability of the gas fill, and the unit’s durability when subjected to high humidity and accelerated weathering environments. Evaluation is made after a shorter exposure time but with more stringent pass/fail criteria, along with additional quality assurance requirements developed by IGCC.

PC is not applicable for designs and materials which have no successful track record with ASTM E-2190 tests.
