          2.2GLAZING - TECNOGLASS
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Tecnoglass' insulating glass saves energy by improving thermal performance. It creates a more comfortable indoor environment free from extreme temperatures and can reduce heating and cooling costs significantly. Inherently, insulating glass improves the window's thermal performance by using an air spacer between two or more lites of glass to reduce the heat gain or loss. The result is windows and doors that are more energy efficient and buildings that are more cost effective. This type of glass can also reduce noise transmission.

Curved, laminated, silk-screened and spandrel glass can all be insulated following this same process. We can provide almost any combination of finishes or properties needed by the customer.

Tecnoglass offers multiple configurations of insulating glass units:
 
          A.Insulating Glass:
          1.Double Sealed:
          a.Primary Seal: Polyisobutylene
          b.Secondary Seal: Silicone.

          C.Heat Treated Glass:
          1.Minimum Horizontal Roll Wave: 0.003 inch center / 0.008 inch edge (peak to valley).
          2.Excellent optical qualities.
          3.Withstand far higher levels of mechanical stress/pressure than non-heat-treated glass.
          4.Can be classified as a "safety glass." Minimizes breakage risk resulting from external agents or from temperature changes.
          5.Milldopter: 90 percent of the surface maximum plus or minus 120 A overall.
          6.Maximum Bow/WrapRAP: 1/2 of ASTM specification C1048.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Heat strengthened glass has been heat-treated to more than 600 degrees C and then gradually cooled to increase its resistance to mechanical and thermal stresses. It offers improved strength and resistance to thermal shock and stress. It is important to note that heat-strengthened glass does not meet safety glazing requirements as outlined by the American National Standards Institute's Z97.1 or the federal safety standard Consumer Products Safety Commission's 16 CFR 1201. Delete heat strengthened glass if not required.
 
          D.Heat Strengthened Glass:
          1.Surface compression range for 1/4 inch (6 mm) heat strengthened glass: 3.500 to 7.500 psi (24.13 x 51.71 kPa).
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Fully tempered glass is around four times stronger than regular annealed glass of similar specifications. Unlike heat-strengthened glass, when the fully tempered glass is broken it breaks in to fairly small, pebble-like pieces, which reduces the chance of injuries. The small glass pieces also make it more likely that the glass will separate from the opening. This glass complies with the safety glazing requirements specified by the American National Standards Institute and the federal safety Standard Consumer Products Safety Commission. Delete fully tempered if not required.
 
          E.Fully Tempered Glass:
          1.Maximum Size: 129.92 x 236.22 inches (3300 x 6000 mm).
          2.Minimum Size: 3.93 x 9.84 inches (100 x 250 mm).
          3.Thickness Range: 1/8 to 3/4 inches (3 to 19 mm).
          4.Surface Compression Range for 1/4 inch (6 mm) Heat Strengthened Glass: Greater than 10,000 psi (69,948 kPa).
          5.High-performance sputter coating compatible.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Spacers are placed within insulating glass units to separate two or more lites of glass. Tecnoglass' insulating glass spacers are available in two colors, three materials and a variety of thicknesses. When specifying an insulating glass unit, it is necessary to specify all three; color, material and thickness. The color doesn't affect the solar performance of the insulating glass. Most existing buildings feature mill finish spacers, since they have been the standard in the glass industry for years. However, more designers are taking advantage of the cleaner appearance of the black painted finish. This finish tends to better blend in with gaskets and framing, thus minimizing the spacer's visual impact. Delete spacers and finish options not required.
 
          F.Spacers:
          1.Material: Aluminum. Thickness: 1/4 inch (6.35 mm).
          2.Material: Aluminum. Thickness: 11/32 inch (8.73 mm).
          3.Material: Aluminum. Thickness: 3/8 inch (9.52 mm).

          13.Finish: Mill finish that has a silver tone.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Coatings are microscopically thin layers of metal that are applied to glass in order to improve solar performance. Low-E (Low-Emissivity) coatings are among the most popular coatings applied to glass because of their low heat transfer properties. They also allow greater light transmission than traditional reflective coatings.
Tecnoglass' coatings and configurations feature an extensive range of sizes, colors, patterns, printing and edgework solutions that allow architects to explore and take advantage of more variables in the project's design. Maximizing benefits like low solar heat gain coefficient and UV transmittance without compromising its aesthetics. All of our Low-E coatings meet the requirements of HVAC systems, saving energy costs and reducing carbon emissions.
The values below represent Center-of-Glass performance data based on NFRC 100 Environmental Design Conditions utilizing the LBNL Window 7.3 software program. Performance data is based on representative samples of factory production. Actual values may vary slightly due to variations in the production process. This data is to be used for comparison purposes and should not be considered a contract. It is the recipient's responsibility to entire the manufacturability of the above glazing configurations as well as evaluating appropriate design considerations such as wind and snow load analysis, thermal stress analysis, and local building code compliance. Tecnoglass recommends that a full size mock-up be reviewed under the specific job-site conditions and retain the mock-up as a basis of acceptable product.
 
          G.Low-E Glass Coatings, Insulating Glass Configurations: Minimizes the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light passing through glass without compromising visible light transmittance. Passive and solar control. Applied to clear or tinted glass.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Tecnoglass N70/38 was developed to enhance Solar Control Low-E giving new architectural projects the energy saving benefits of Low-E glass anytime of the year. A winter U Value of 0.29 and a summer U-Value of 0.27 are the perfect combination for controlling heat loss in the winter and heat transfer in the summer.
Using the combination of N70/38 and a tinted glass can reduce solar heat gain down to as low as a SHGC of 0.13 and produces an excellent Light to Solar Gain ratio as high as 1.79 (LSG).
Tecnoglass N70/38 glass can be coated on Starphire glass and paired with Starphire glass or with other ultra-clear glasses to produce an IGU with exceptional clarity and solar control characteristics. For even more color and performance options, it can be coated on the second (No. 2) surface of nearly all Vitro's wide range of tinted glasses or combined in an IGU with any Vitro tinted glass, Solarcool reflective glass or Vistacool subtly reflective, color-enhanced glass.

          2.3LAMINATED GLAZING - TECNOGLASS
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Tecnoglass' insulating glass saves energy by improving thermal performance. It creates a more comfortable indoor environment free from extreme temperatures and can reduce heating and cooling costs significantly. Inherently, insulating glass improves the window's thermal performance by using an air spacer between two or more lites of glass to reduce the heat gain or loss. The result is windows and doors that are more energy efficient and buildings that are more cost effective. This type of glass can also reduce noise transmission.
Curved, laminated, silk-screened and spandrel glass can all be insulated following this same process. We can provide almost any combination of finishes or properties needed by the customer.
Tecnoglass offers multiple configurations of insulating glass units:
 
          A.Laminated Glass: ASTM C 1172 and complying with the testing requirements in 16 CFR 1201 for category II materials, and with other requirements specified. Use materials that have a proven record of no tendency to bubble, discolor, or lose physical and mechanical properties after fabrication.
          1.Construction: Laminate glass with poly-vinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer or ionoplast interlayer.
          2.Interlayer thickness: Provide thickness not less than that indicated and as needed to comply with requirements.
          3.Interlayer color: Clear unless otherwise indicated.
          4.Maximum Size: For laminated glass is 129 x 236 inch (3277 x 5994 mm); special lite requirement.
 
          B.Glass Substrates:
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete glass substrates options not required.
          1.Clear: Has a slight green color.
          2.Low Iron: Less iron than clear glass. It has less of a green tint.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Heat strengthened glass has been heat-treated to more than 600 degrees C and then gradually cooled to increase its resistance to mechanical and thermal stresses. It offers improved strength and resistance to thermal shock and stress. It is important to note that heat-strengthened glass does not meet safety glazing requirements as outlined by the American National Standards Institute's Z97.1 or the federal safety standard Consumer Products Safety Commission's 16 CFR 1201.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Coatings are microscopically thin layers of metal that are applied to glass in order to improve solar performance. Low-E (Low-Emissivity) coatings are among the most popular coatings applied to glass because of their low heat transfer properties. They also allow greater light transmission than traditional reflective coatings.
Tecnoglass' coatings and configurations feature an extensive range of sizes, colors, patterns, printing and edgework solutions that allow architects to explore and take advantage of more variables in the project's design. Maximizing benefits like low solar heat gain coefficient and UV transmittance without compromising its aesthetics. All of our Low-E coatings meet the requirements of HVAC systems, saving energy costs and reducing carbon emissions.
The values below represent Center-of-Glass performance data based on NFRC 100 Environmental Design Conditions utilizing the LBNL Window 7.3 software program. Performance data is based on representative samples of factory production. Actual values may vary slightly due to variations in the production process. This data is to be used for comparison purposes and should not be considered a contract. It is the recipient's responsibility to entire the manufacturability of the above glazing configurations as well as evaluating appropriate design considerations such as wind and snow load analysis, thermal stress analysis, and local building code compliance. Tecnoglass recommends that a full size mock-up be reviewed under the specific job-site conditions and retain the mock-up as a basis of acceptable product.

          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Curved glass makes buildings flow. Curved or bent glass is one of the fastest growing architectural trends as it is being increasingly used to add dramatic movement and dimension to traditionally static structures, taking them to the next level. This trend includes spiral staircases, skylights, elevators, stadiums, zoos, bridges, curtain walls, as well as hundreds of other uses.
TecnoBEND bent glass is available with tempered Low-E coating in architectural glass sizes. It is also possible to bend and temper a glass coating against the rollers. Bending is performed through gravity bending processes, by pressing the glass against rollers to assure high optical glass quality. We process flat glass in the bending section of the tempering line with a separate chiller.
Beyond new fabrication methods, curved glass also has benefited from the availability of more robust coatings and interlayers. Proprietary technology allows us to curve glass while maintaining its patterns and effects. Coatings and interlayers available open up a number of new options for curved glass.
