Power Saver Heat/Press

More Information

Designed to rapidly and evenly heat the sealing material of all types of spacers, to the required temperature for proper sealant-to-glass adhesion. The insulating glass unit is sealed and precisely compressed to the required overall thickness.

KEY FEATURES:

Energy-Saving Design – operates on less maintenance and power requirements than conventional systems

Automatic Oven Louver System – maintains consistent heat control and significantly reduces maintenance costs

Precision Calculated Heat Control – maintains the optimum amount of heat required to output a quality unit
Benefits of Precision Calculated Heat Control:
Improved Substrate Bonding – lengthens life expectancy of IG unit
Better Surface Bond – improves gas retention
Fewer Seal Failures – due to more sealant being retained between the glass and spacer
Cooler Processing Temperatures – reduce unnecessary stress on the seal
Eliminates Built-In Stress – resulting from negative pressures in “hot” sealed units
