Warm edge experts Edgetech joined delegates from around the world at China Glass, one of the biggest dates in the global glass industry’s calendar.
Held each year in Beijing or Shanghai, the massive trade show reliably draws visitors in excess of thirty thousand, and this year featured 800 exhibiting companies from over thirty countries.
Edgetech, which trades under the name of parent company Quanex in China, attracted attention from new prospects and existing customers alike with its impressive warm edge offerings, including its TruPlas, Dura, and flagship Super Spacer products.
Of particular interest was an eye-catching curved IGU display, made with Super Spacer TriSeal.
Chris Alderson, Managing Director for the UK and Asia Pacific, commented: “The fact this was our seventh appearance at China Glass speaks volumes about how valuable the show is for our business.
“It gives us the opportunity to meet thousands of new prospects from every continent on the planet – and if thirty years of talking to people about Super Spacer and our other best-in-class products has taught us anything, it’s that seeing their phenomenal performance in person is often enough to persuade potential customers to make the switch.
“It was fantastic meeting so many glazing professionals from all around the world, and we look forward to developing the new contacts we made into lasting, mutually profitable relationships.”
Edgetech’s Super Spacer is the leading foam warm edge spacer product on the market, offering easy application, 100% memory and exceptional thermal efficiency and condensation resistance. The firm also manufactures an extensive range of other flexible components, including its commercial-focused TriSeal and T-Spacer and conservation-friendly Heritage product, as well as a number of rigid products.
In 2011, Edgetech was acquired by billion-dollar building products giant Quanex. Soon after, Edgetech was merged with Truseal to create the world’s largest warm edge manufacturing site. Edgetech now has three spacer manufacturing facilities located in the USA, UK and Germany and between the sites in excess of 300 million metres of spacer is produced every year.
