KÖMMERLING Chemische Fabrik, a leading supplier of sealants and adhesives for the insulating glass — structural glazing — and glazing market, announced today the introduction of a new Thermo Plastic Spacer. Koedispace 4SG, is designed to meet the stringent demands of the structural glazing market and meets specifically the gas tightness in combination with silicones according to the EN 1279 part 3 confirmed by the ift in Rosenheim. Now KÖMMERLING Chemische Fabrik GmbH provides the complete product range for structural glazing together with GD 920 and Koediglaze S. Both silicones fulfill the requirements of the ETAG 002 which is confirmed in the ETA-08/0004 and 08/0286.
Ernst Semar, head of product management for KÖMMERLING, explained; “Koedispace 4SG is the latest addition to our range of proven products. It provides both a physical bond and a chemical adhesion that is ideally suited for applications on the facades of buildings where the glass is an integral part of the structure. Its new formulation also makes it more robust and resilient to the extremes of high temperature found in areas such as the Gulf States, where some of the most architecturally challenging glass structures are currently under construction.”
Jens Wolthaus, technical service manager for PIB based products for KÖMMERLING, added: “We believe that Koedispace 4SG is the best warm edge solution for the production of gas filled silicone IG units. Using this product in conjunction with the latest automatic application processes not only reduces the chances of manual failure but helps manufacturers to produce high grade IG units that fulfill the highest requirements of modern low energy buildings.”
