TruPlas has been cleverly designed for increased stability and strength. Its ridged surface offers a more traditional appearance, without any compromise on efficiency or performance.
Benefits of Using Rigid Warm Edge Spacer Bars
TruPlas from Edgetech UK offers excellent high / low temperature performance for windows. Its engineered glass reinforced thermoplastic composition has low thermal conductivity to reduce heat loss in insulated glass units.
The dual-seal warm edge spacer for double glazed units utilises proven technologies, like the vapour barrier with advanced acrylic which strengthens when exposed to heat. It has good UV resistance with no chemical fogging. This prevents HMB “blowing out” in the corners.
TruPlas also has pleasing aesthetics. The ridged surface of the thermoplastic gives a more traditional appearance when used in insulated glass unit manufacture. The three colour choices; black, white and light grey offer good colour stability and the spacer bar has a matte surface finish.
Manufacturing Insulated Glass Units with TruPlas
Insulated glass units can be manufactured with traditional methods using TruPlas. There are a range of machinery options including computer-controlled spacer bar cutting saws and automatic bar bending machinery.
All manual, semi-automated and fully automatic machinery and insulated glass unit manufacturing lines are supported by Edgetech’s technical division. With support during installation and the training process, followed up by troubleshooting help.
TruPlas rigid warm edge spacer bar is available with a range of connecting keys for cut and key and Georgian applications.
Standard corner keys are available in the same colours as TruPlas spacer bar for a seamless appearance and a range of cavity widths are available too.
Gas corner keys are available in similar colours and types – one with a hole for injecting gas into the glazed unit and the other without. Gas key plugs are again, available in the same colours and ensure gas is effectively sealed within the unit.
TruPlas SDL – Warm Solution for IGUs
TruPlas Simulated Divided Lite system offers more choice for IGU manufacturers.
The specially designed I-beam enables greater rigidity and eliminates the possibility the frame twisting inside large insulated glass units twisting which can be a problem with some box section or duplex systems.
Available in black, white and grey to match the TruPlas spacer system, TruPlas SDL is available in a choice of two widths; 18mm and 23mm.
TruPlas SDL is compatible with our range of both flexible and rigid spacer bars.
