TECHNICAL DATA - Super Spacer ® Super Spacer® Premium

Technical Specification

Super Spacer Premium is a flexible, silicone foam spacer products that provides the maximum in perimeter insulation for sealed glazing units.  Desiccant-filled with pre-applied side adhesive, the structural foam spacer significantly simplifies insulating glass (IG) production.


Featuring a vapour barrier backing, the product must be applied in combination with conventional IG sealants such as hot melt butyl, polyurethane and solvent-free polysulfide.  Dual seal equivalent sealants may also be used (reference IG sealants Technical Bulletin RD0018)

Product Features

Warm-Edge Benefits

Superior silicone foam insulation; low thermal conductivity; substantially reduced perimeter condensation; typical overall 0.2 W/mK 9 0.03 BTU/hr-ft-°F) U-value window improvement.

Silicone Foam Features

Excellent UV resistance; extreme temperature performance; fast dew-point drop; superior compression-set resistance; excellent colour stability; enhanced sound dampening.


Edge-Seal Durability

Continuous vapour barrier at corners; no chemical fogging; high desiccant content; same spacer material and edge-seal technology as the proven Premium Plus product

Unique Dual-Seal Design

Outer hot-melt butyl sealant for enhanced gas retention; inner structural acrylic side adhesive; immediate unit handling; no cold flow or spacer/seal migration problems

Pleasing Aesthetic Appearance

Black colour, smooth matte surface finish; no surface blistering or bubbling; straight-line application with sharp 90° corners

Super Spacer® TriSeal™ Premium Plus

Technical Specification


Super Spacer® TriSeal™ Premium Plus  is a flexible, silicone foam spacer designed to satisfy the toughest commercial glazing demands including silicone structural glazing (SSG).  Its unique triple-seal design incorporates an inner acrylic adhesive seal for immediate unit handling.


TriSeal comes complete with a polyisobutylene primary seal for enhanced gas retention and low moisture vapour transmission.  A customer-applied silicone seal provides proven structural performance.   Polyurethane, polysulfide and hot metal butyl/DSE’s are acceptable sealants for captured glazing applications
