Common Flaws of Insulated Glass Units
From the Desk of Alex
Today, I focus on Insulated Glass units and the many, many potential flaws that are looked for during fabrication.
The images below will show you the different components and their potential problems.
- Secondary Seal: Silicone
- Secondary Seal: Hot Melt or the ugly old Butyl word
- Primary Seal: PIB line on box spacers
- Box Spacer
- Soft Spacer
Let’s not forget that we have have the right glass, free of all of it’s potential own flaws added to this mix.
Anyway, just thought it would be worth a share.
