Old Technology double-pane glass dating back To 1970 typical of the glass installed in your windows now and still being used by window manufactures today. Cheaper to produce but won't last.

Super Spacer-Dual Seal 10 yr

Metal

Defect #1: Metal spacer conducts moisture as each glass surface rests on the spacer and is exposed daily to the different temperatures from inside to outside of your home year round. This deteriorates the Desiccant life faster and becomes the moisture and cloudiness you are experiencing now. Defect #2: Single seal double-pane glass only has but 1 seal to keep out moisture and protect the integrity of the units life.

New Warm Edge Technology-Super Spacer

 What is Warm Edge Technology? Warm Edge Technology refers to the type of spacer material used to separate the glass lites in an insulating glass window unit. If the material is less conductive than a conventional aluminum spacer at the edge of the glass, it is said to be warm edge. Super Spacer is made of 100 percent foam. Super Spacer's True WARM No-Metal formula blocks the heat escape path and provides some of the best thermal performance and durability in the industry.
These are just a few of the reasons US Glass Corp only uses Super Spacer for the construction of our glass products manufactured and installed in your home. Long-Term Durability = Sustainability

US Glass Corp Insulated Glass Units are made to order with Super Spacer products specially engineered, all foam, NO-Metal technology.  Super Spacer is a true dual seal warm edge spacer system that uses a high-performance acrylic adhesive for its structural seal, backed by a moisture vapor seal.  Two seals are better than one-proven by the fact the windows mad with Super Spacer last five times longer in durability tests than single-seal units.(Old Technology)

 

US Glass Corp & Super Spacer's all foam, NO-Metal formula provides:

 

Thermal Performance

Windows lose and gain heat by conduction,convention,radiation and air leakage.

Conduction is the movement of heat through a solid material-touch a hot skillet and you feel heat conducted from the stove through the pan.  Heat flows through

a window in much the same way.  Unlike metal-based spacers, the all foam construction of Super Spacer is non-conductive, blocking heat flow through the window.  By blocking the heat escape path, Super Spacer provides on of the

                  best thermal performances in the industry.

 

                  Durability

                  Unlike metal spacers, Super Spacer can bounce back when put to

                  the test against winds, temperature fluctuation, rain,snow and UV

                  light.  The foam construction allows it to expand and contract as

                  need, but always return to its original shape.  Without 100 percent

                  memory formula, windows can eventually crack and lead to failure.

 

                  Mold Prevention

                  The fact that our units are non-conductive means that it also

                  protects a major household threat:mold. Window condensation can

                  lead to molds that increase the likelihood of allergens, including

                  fungi, viruses and mites that cause respiratory infections, allergies

                  and asthma.  Mold needs moisture to grow. To keep condensation

                  off of glass, windows need to have the warmest inside surface temp

                  as possible-and the warmest edge occurs with Super Spacer.

 

                  Sound Absorption

                  The closed-cell polymer foam in Super Spacer transmits very little

                  sound compared to conventional metal spacers. Another reason to

                  replace your glass with US Glass Corp Units.
