The incredible design versatility of insulated glass makes it a perfect window and door material choice for a residential, commercial, and industrial settings. The glass helps regulate the indoor temperature and keeps the indoor cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It’s an eco-friendly design option that significantly reduces carbon footprint and also cuts down the electricity cost.
Insulating glass units (IGU) are available in numerous different types based on their application and need for insulation. The design versatility of contemporary glass allows room for modifications based on the user’s needs. The types of double glazing glass are differentiated based on cavity-filling material, additional coatings, and sealing layers.
Argon gas is widely used in insulating glass units to fill up the cavity between the layers or panes of glass. An inexpensive, colorless, odorless, and non-toxic argon gas greatly contributes to the enhancement of the performance of insulated glass. Noble gases like argon are usually preferred over the air as the presence of air in the cavity often fogs up the glass due to the high percentage of moisture. Air does also has lesser insulating properties than the noble gas counterparts.
