Has anyone had experience with the new warm edge technology that uses a plastic spaceer (no metal) in the insulating glass unit?

NexGen by Traco is an example of this technology. I could not verify claims as to the length of service of this technology in Europe.

Have you looked at the nrc website? I downloaded this a while ago, but it addresses the energy issues and not the longevity:


There may be information about longevity elsewhere on the site.

Mr Crocco-

It is a very new technology. Are you looking for it for a commercial application?

If so, you could look at Azon USA- their website is: www.warmedge.com
They have a few certified fabricators and they may actually be TRACO's Supplier as well.
