TPS® AND HOTMELT – FIRST-CLASS SOLUTION FOR THE RESIDENTIAL MARKET
At this year’s Glassbuild America from September 12 – 14, 2017 in Atlanta Bystronic glass will present a first-class solution for the requirements of the residential I.G. market – the combination of the Thermo Plastic Spacer material TPS® and a reactive hotmelt sealing material. Bystronic glass once again reinforces its image as a market leader of future-oriented technologies for the efficient processing of architectural and automotive glass.
For the first time Bystronic glass will present its insulating glass production line B’VARIO TPS in combination with the hotmelt’sealer for continuous, automatic sealing of varying glass formats and dimensions with a reactive hotmelt sealing material.
Specifically designed for the residential I.G. market, the new combination of Thermo Plastic Spacer TPS® and hotmelt sealing material offers the I.G. manufacturer a significantly improved capability of handling of the I.G. units immediately after the sealing process. This leads to a simplified logistics of the finished I.G. units and a remarkable reduction of requested storage space.
Since 1994, Bystronic glass has pioneered development and provided market leadership in TPS® production. Conventional insulating glass with metal spacer transfers the heat or the cold respectively to either the inside or outside, which consequently does not provide an ideal thermal insulation. The organic polyisobutylene spacer TPS® without metal insert provides a best possible thermal insulation and, subsequently, reduces the U-value by up to 12% compared to a conventional window with an aluminum edge seal.
Consequently, the highest standards in thermal insulation are met.
Preferred Partner cooperation with HEGLA
Once again, Bystronic glass will emphasise its preferred partner cooperation with HEGLA at Glassbuild America. HEGLA will present the RAPIDLINE, the shape cutting machine for float glass. It is equipped with the well-proven electro-magnetic linear drives with optimal cutting speed and a significant reduction of maintenance.
