Thermix at the VITRUM 2017

Ensinger and CIV System show further improved Thermix spacer for insulating glass units with a warm edge at Vitrum

This year’s Vitrum (3-6 October 2017) is expected to attract roughly 350 exhibitors and more than 18,000 visitors to Milan. Ensinger and its partner for Italy, CIV System, will be presenting the new Thermix TX Pro spacer. The successor of the well-established Thermix TX.N plus comes lighter and with a slightly improved Psi-value.

“Aim of the facelift was to further improve the workability of our spacer”, says Andreas Prechtl, Export Sales Manager at Ensinger. “Thermix TX Pro is similarly stable, yet lighter. The lower mass inertia leads to less swinging and therefore to reduced material stress. So the bending process runs even smoother.”

Efficient performance

“How well Thermix spacers work in practice can be seen live during the Vitrum fair”, says Andreas Prechtl. “Lombarda Macchine, manufacturer for bending machines, will be showing the bending process with Thermix on a demonstration line at its stand.”

Rigid Thermix spacers make it easy to replace traditional aluminum bars in IGU processing. Thanks to the combination of highly insulating plastic, reinforcing wires and a thin stainless-steel diffusion barrier, Thermix spacers have very good thermal properties and enable insulation glazing with outstanding UW values.

Certified component

Ensinger, a leading specialist for engineered plastics, is continuously refining Thermix, one of the first hybrid spacers. “The product range includes spacers, muntin bars and matching accessories. IGU manufacturers in Italy can rely on quick local supply and support through insulating glass expert CIV System,” says Claudio Feduzi, CEO at CIV System, a leading partner to Italy’s insulation glazing industry.

Recently, Thermix once again received the seal of the independent Passive House Institute. Its tested thermal characteristic values offer reliable planning assistance for energy-efficient buildings, for example, using energy balancing software. Thermix is suitable for low-energy and passive houses in warm to cold climate zones.

About Thermix

Thermix spacers improve the thermal separation of insulated glass windows, doors and facades. This helps save energy and consequently heating and cooling costs as well as cutting carbon emissions. As an insulated glazing edge bond system, Thermix spacers provide a "warm edge". In addition, Thermix muntin bars produce the appearance of a genuine lattice window but with an excellent level of insulation. Both products can be simply and efficiently processed. Specially developed corner keys and straight connectors ensure well-fitting and secure connections every time. Thermix is a brand of Ensinger, one of the leading specialists in high-performance plastics.
