Flexible Spacers suit varying window manufacturing needs.
June 3, 2003 - With smooth surface appearance and gray sightline, Insuledgeâ„˘ spacers incorporate flexible, hollow, non-metallic tube design. DuraSealâ„˘ multi-layered spacers take advantage of laminates and adhesives to reduce thermal conductivity and provide condensation resistance, continuous moisture vapor barrier, and argon gas retention. Swiggle® Seal spacers, suited for sealing IG units, reduce conductivity of edge seal and provide condensation resistance.

TruSeal Flexible Spacer Family Offers Window Manufacturers Choices for Manufacturing Versatility
Beachwood, OH - May 2003 â€“ TruSeal Technologies, Inc., a world leader in flexible spacer systems for insulating glass (IG), offers a complete line of unique flexible spacers for varying manufacturing needs. The company's family of high-performance spacers offers window manufacturers a variety of choices based on cost, manufacturing capabilities, thermal performance and energy efficiency. TruSeal's flexible spacer family includes: Insuledgeâ„˘, DuraSealâ„˘ and Swiggle® Seal.
Insuledgeâ„˘ â€“ The first and only flexible spacer to incorporate a flexible, hollow non-metallic tube design, Insuledge is the warmest flexible IG spacer system on the market today. The hollow core replaces conductive solid or foam materials with better insulating air space for superior thermal performance, better than solid, foam or metal profile spacers.
In fact, Insuledge is 50 percent lower in conductivity than the next warmest spacer, thereby offering less condensation and better U-values than other spacers.
Insuledge's flexible tube design makes all types of insulating glass fabrication possible and cost effective. No more bending rigid, metal profiles or mixing "u-channel" metal spacers with foam or solid flexible spacers. Insuledge can follow the edge of virtually any shape of IG unit and has a smooth surface appearance and a gray sightline.
DuraSealâ„˘ â€“ A flexible spacer that adapts to any window design, DuraSeal features a patent pending design that incorporates unique materials and a breakthrough in continuous composite manufacturing processes. DuraSeal takes optimum advantage of laminates and adhesives to reduce thermal conductivity while improving surface and corner appearance over other flexible spacers. This multi-layered spacer system results in improved condensation resistance, warmer edge of glass temperature, a continuous moisture vapor barrier, superior argon gas retention and reduced total window U-value.
Swiggle® Seal - TruSeal's original flexible spacer, Swiggle Seal is an efficient and reliable system for sealing IG units. Since its introduction in 1979, Swiggle Seal has been proven to reduce conductivity of the edge seal by 75 percent, provide better condensation resistance and improve edge of glass temperatures compared to aluminum spacer bars.
In addition to standard black Swiggle Seal, TruSeal offers Gray Swiggle Seal for a gray sightline appearance, Grooved Swiggle, for decorative window applications and D'S Swiggle for dual seal IG applications using silicone, as with bent glass IG.

Headquartered in Beachwood, Ohio, TruSeal Technologies is one of the world's leading manufacturers and marketers of insulating glass products. TruSeal produces superior IG flexible spacer systems with consistent after sales service and a comprehensive warranty program that has no equal. TruSeal is listed in the Adhesives & Sealants Industry "ASI Top 50" as a leading supplier to the IG market.

Sir, I am attempting to repair a set of windows after a recent wind storm. The company that furnished the windows no longer carry the windows and now I am having to either pay thousands to replace the whole window set (8 ft x 5 ft) or repairing one pane section of six for a faction of the cost. My only issue is replacing the swiggle seal between the panes of glass. I would like to know do you have this material for purchase. If so the dimensions of the seal are 12.7mm (.5 inch) width and at least 480 inches (40 ft) in length. I will appreciate any assistance you may have. Thank you,
