MEDISTAR S

The MEDISTAR S ® is a low-emissivity high performance glass, it is intended to be assembled in double glazing. It consists of a clear glass coated with a thin transparent layer of oxide of metals and noble metals, deposited by cathode sputtering under vacuum. The layer reflects the thermal infrared and limits heat loss by radiation.

MEDISTAR S® offers low emissivity. Mounted in double glazing, it allows to obtain the value Ug = 1.1 W / (m²K) in a composition 4mm/16mm Ar (90%)/4mm. It can be used in all insulating glass units for new constructions or renovation:
Window and French windows of houses;
Veranda and loggia;
Window and facade of non-residential building.

Transformation (manufacture of double glazing using soft layer glasses)

The manufacturing process of glazing incorporating a soft layer (double glazing) is not quite similar to that of ordinary glazing, it is subject to precautions in terms of handling, transport, storage, cutting and washing, it is especially important to avoid the contact between the layer and the hard or pointed objects and to keep the layer of the upper side during its handling on the tables and the conveyors because, there is always dust and micro-debris which arise on the cutting and shaping tables.

Thus, prior to assembly, peripheral shrinkage is required to remove the layer where the seal will be applied.

In summary, you pay attention to:

  1. Use demineralized water for washing,
  2. Keep the layer face up while machining the layered glass (cutting and shaping),
  3. Never put the layer in direct contact with the seal (silicone), it must be done,
  4. Make sure the layer is inside the double glazing (face 2 or 3)

The layer can be in position 2 or 3
