THINK ABOUT what windows go through. They have to face extreme temperature changes all year. Plus, they’re bombarded with UV rays, barometric pressure changes and nasty winds.
FOAM - The Ultimate Edge
Luckily, there’s a simply way to give you windows an advantage in reducing energy costs, ensuring durability and adding comfort and value to your home. It’s foam, a unique formula we call Super Spacer. The all-foam formula in Super Spacer used to separate the panes of glass in your windows conducts less heat than conventional metal spacers at the edge of the glass.
Super Spacer products are manufactured with Thermoset Spacer (TTS®) Technology. Thermoset polymers are materials with crosslinks that become permanently set during the curing process. They 100% memory, meaning they cannot be reshaped through reheating. Window spacing systems manufactured with TSS polymers and acrylic adhesives provide superior structural integrity.
Metal can’t bounce back the way Super Spacer can. Thanks to our Thermoset Spacer (TSS) technology, the spacer will expand and contract, but it will always return to its original shape. Rigid metal and plastic spacers cannot compensate for the natural expansion and contract that occurs daily in insulating glass.
The NO-Metal Advantage.
Conduction is the movement of heat through a solid material. Touch a skillet and you feel heat conducted from the stove through the pan. Heat flows through a window much the same way. Our all-foam formula blocks the heat path and provides one of the best thermal performances in the industry. This means it keeps the heat out, so you stay cool and comfortable inside.
Super Spacer Premium Plus and Premium have met the following global standards:
The Durability Test
Windows subjected to 100% humidity, constant UV bombardment and 140°F are a fact of life.
If only the strong survive, then we’ll outlast all the rest. All Super Spacer products meet the challenge of the P-1 chamber, the test many engineers consider the world’s toughest. One week spent in a P-1 chamber is equivalent to one year in the field. And since Super Spacer survives 125 weeks, well you do the math….
