“With a continued focus on reducing greenhouse gases worldwide, even temperate regions are now looking to high-performance IG to help meet environmental goals in structures,” Rogers said. “The GPD South America presentation will focus on how sealants and low conductivity spacers contribute to the durability of IG units and protect Low-e coatings long term for a more sustainable system.”
