EDGE SEAL ACCESSORIES FOR PROTECTION OF LAMINATED GLASS COMPOSITES

ARGOEDGESEALPLUS®

Patent pending* ArgoEdgeSealPLUS is designed for laminators to seal the edges of multilayer glass and glass-like composites, regardless of the interlayer (TPU or PVB).  It is compatible with glass-to-glass, glass-to-polycarbonate, and other commonly used subtrates used in security and architectural applications.  This next generation edge seal has a unique foil layer sandwiched between two sheets of tough, chemical-resistant polyurethane, offering the ultimate in properties:

  • Provides dramatically enhanced moisture and solvent resistance.
  • Minimizes composite layer damage from solvents contained in caulks, sealants and cleaning solutions.    
  • Helps protect the edge of glass laminates from chipping and other minor damage.
  • Creates an aesthetically pleasing appearance on the laminate edge.

ArgoEdgeSealPLUS is available in a large variety of standard widths.  Custom-slit widths are available upon request.  Master rolls, 40-inches (1m) wide by 120-feet (36.5m) long, may be purchased.

STORAGE AND HANDLING

ArgoEdgeSealPLUS has a one-year shelf life from date of shipment when stored in the original packaging under dry conditions below 90F (32C).

* Patent number 12/714,569.

BOC-9450 EDGE SEAL

Argotec's BOC-9450 EDGE SEAL is designed for use by glass laminators to seal the edges of multi-layer composites made from glass or other glass-like materials. It offers the following benefits:

  • Provides a degree of protection to the edge of the glass laminate from chipping or other mild physical damage.
  • Prevents moisture penetration between the composite layers.
  • Protects against damage due to migration of solvents contained in the caulks used to install the finished glass laminate.
  • Creates an aesthetically pleasing appearance on the laminate edge.

Argotec's BOC-9450 EDGE SEAL is currently available in a variety of standard widths. Custom-slit widths are also available upon request. Master rolls may be purchased in dimensions of 40-inches (1 m) wide by 120-feet (36.5 m) long

LAMINATION INFORMATION

Argotec's BOC-9450 requires a minimum lamination temperature of 195°F (90°C).

STORAGE AND HANDLING

Argotec's BOC-9450 requires no special storage or handling. Simply keeping it clean and dry will ensure usable product.

INSTALLATION

It is advisable to wipe the laminate with isopropyl alcohol prior to applying Argotec's BOC-9450 to the composite edge in order to remove any contaminants that could interfere with the bond.

This product is designed for use in conjunction with vacuum forming. First, secure it to the edge of the glass laminate/composite by tape. The composite is then inserted into the vacuum bag and autoclaved.
