Q. Do you have any tips for making sealed units to meet EN1279 part 3 standards?

  • Limit the number of paths for escape of gas where possible and ensure that corners, joints and staple holes are secured to limit gas loss. It is unlikely that you will be able to meet the requirements of part 3 without using a dual seal system - i.e. PIB as an inner sealant.  If you don't have a PIB machine, ask us about purchasing your spacer bar with pre-applied PIB.
  • Try using hand-applied PIB as a primary seal to bond your unit together.
  • Once your unit is filled with gas, plug and fill gas holes as soon as possible to limit the gas loss during manufacture.
  • To achieve the best sealant bond ensure that the sealant is at its optimum temperature for application and that the glass is warm and dry.

Q. What is the shelf life of Thermoflex Warm Edge Spacer?

The shelf life of Thermoflex Warm Edge Spacer is 12 months from the date of manufacture and this is printed on the individual label attached to each box.  This is a similar shelf life to other pre-desiccated flexible spacer systems and may still be fully active beyond this period.  

To ensure that the product is fully active, you can check this using an activity test kit, which is  available to purchase from Thermoseal Group.  See: Thermoflex Desiccant Test KitsReplacement Humidity Indicator Cards are also available.

We recommend that once opened, Thermoflex should be resealed in the original foil bag, expelling as much air as possible to ensure the maximum usable life.
