Thermoflex warm edge spacer can now be supplied with insulated glass (IG) sealed unit manufacturer company details inkjet printed on its surface. Thermoseal Group offers this facility for free as part of its service commitment to customers.
The Group’s sales director, Mark Hickox, said: “Inkjet printing Thermoflex on our production lines means that we can offer a bespoke service to IG manufacturers and help them to achieve requirements for CE marking. This means that customers can now purchase a bespoke foam spacer with the lowest thermal conductivity value of 0.135W/mK (according to Bundesverband Flachglas Data Sheet) from a leading UK manufacturer and at a competitive price. Thermoflex is also Passive House approved with an ‘A+’ rating.
“Thermoflex warm edge spacer is now an established product with many IG manufacturers using it to make highest performance IG sealed units. We have a strong relationship with our customers and make every effort to seek feedback and act upon their requests. It is because of this that we quickly introduced Thermoflex in a wide range of sizes in black and grey. We have also invested in additional buildings to house our growing Thermoflex production facility and increase our capacity four-fold.
“We currently supply over 50% of the spacer into the UK and this percentage is increasing on a continual basis. Thermobar and Thermoflex are two of the most thermally efficient spacer systems available, and now due to increased manufacturing capacity exciting times are ahead as we take our warm edge range onto the global market.
“Thermobar and Thermoflex are fully tested to EN1279 standards and various international standards which require performance over and above the 1279 minimum requirements. Both products are also subject to continual in-house batch testing to ensure that the products that we offer are always of the highest quality. All of Thermoseal Group’s products are in continual development in our innovation centre.
“We have invested massively in our innovation centre and EN1279 test facilities, to ensure that we understand the conditions within a glazing unit and how each component performs within the lifetime of the unit. This helps us to ensure that the components we manufacture and supply are second-to-none.
“Thermoflex sales are continually increasing with the growing demand for this product as customers try it and see its advantages in production.
“We are looking forward to demonstrating the benefits of Thermobar and Thermoflex at both the Fit Show and China Glass in April, and will again be exhibiting on the global glass industry’s leading stage at Glasstec Dusseldorf in September.”
