VIG Technologies with LandVac/Landglass is offering the first metal-seal tempered vacuum-insulated glass (VIG). Removing the air from between glazing provides amazing thermal and acoustical performance, but the technology is difficult to manufacture. At only 1/3" thick, the VIG Technologies VIG has a minimum U-value of 0.10 (R-10), with U-0.08 (R-13) possible. The company uses a proprietary edge-sealing technology that works with the tempered glass. Micro-support pillars keep glass surfaces from touching. This VIG comes standard with low-e coatings and can be customized depending on end use and window orientation. The thermal performance of this glazing is equal to standard triple- and quadruple-glazed windows that are almost four inches thick, making it a good choice for retrofits or where space is limited. Manufactured in sizes up to 60" x 98", Tempered VIG will be available from several manufacturers in 2018 and includes the SGCC certification.
