NO – Metal Super Spacer provides superior performance
With its advanced all-silicone foam formula and a unique dual-seal design, Super Spacer leaves all other window spacers out in the cold and delivers on the promise of warm edge technology.Windows edged with Super Spacer satisfy the toughest warm edge demands by:
- Clearly resisting window condensation.
- Reducing energy costs.
- Providing long-life durability.
- Maintaining their attractive appearance.
- Reducing outside noise distractions.
- Adding both comfort and value to your home.
If you’re looking for premium performance in your home’s replacement windows, make sure they are Super Spacer sealed.
Super Spacer® – TrueWARM® Edge Technology
Clearly, the Super Spacer product line stands alone. We call it TrueWARM because Super Spacer is the world’s only 100% polymer foam, NO-Metal Warm Edge spacing system. Its arrival on the scene in 1989 revolutionized the insulating glass industry, and today, this TSS® technology is still breaking new ground in providing the warmest, longest-lasting windows anywhere in the world.
The NO-Metal Advantage “Thermal efficiency through no presence of conductive metals” is Super Spacer’s hallmark. The edge of the insulating glass unit is indeed the most vulnerable to heat and cooling loss, window condensation and frosting. Super Spacer’s NO-Metal formula blocks the heat escape path and provides one of the best thermal performances in the industry. That means it keeps the heat in during the winter months and keeps the cool in during the summer months. Super Spacer assures comfortable winter humidity levels with hardly any worries about condensation and mold.
Thermoset Spacer (TSS®) Technology
All Super Spacer® products are manufactured with Thermoset Spacer (TSS) technology. Thermoset polymers are materials with crosslinks that become permanently set during the curing process. They have 100% memory, meaning they cannot be reshaped through reheating. Window spacing systems manufactured with TSS polymers and acrylic adhesives provide superior structural integrity. They will stand up to a wide range of temperatures, and they are configured with outstanding UV resistance.
Super Spacer Premium Plus and Premium products are all extruded as a high-quality silicone foam tape. Silicone is well known for its superior resistance to ozone, sunlight and oxidation and is very color stable. It also maintains excellent flexibility at low temperatures, has outstanding resistance to high heat, and has a low compression set. Many silicones have been exposed to outdoor weathering for 15 years with no significant loss of physical properties. In fact, silicone is the polymer of choice for a broad range of high performance applications.
Standard Super Spacer is extruded as a flexible organic foam tape product. Its base polymer, EPDM (Ethylene-Propylene-Diene-Monomer), is known for its excellent ozone, weathering and aging resistance. It also has excellent water resistance and maintains its flexibility at low temperatures.
