In addition to the advantages of vacuum insulated glass, tempered vacuum insulated glass offers an additional layer of protection. Vacuum Glass tempered vacuum insulated glass has a number of advantages, including the following:
When exposed to impact, tempered vacuum glass retains all of the safety properties of tempered glass, thanks to low-temperature sealing technology. Vacuum Glass tempered vacuum insulated glass has a surface stress of more than 90MPa, which is in full compliance with the safety glass criterion.
Vacuum glass provides up to four times the thermal insulation capability of insulated glass
Vacuum glass, because of its high vacuum interspace, fully prohibits the passage of heat from gas to the glass surface. The U-value of Vacuum Glass may be reduced to 0.48 W/(m2•K) by employing a high-performance Low-E coating, which considerably reduces radiation heat transmission. Insulated glass performs 2 to 4 times better than vacuum glass in terms of thermal insulation and 6 to 10 times better than single pane glass. When used in stand-alone applications, vacuum glass meets all international passive house heat transfer standards for windows and doors.
Vacuum glass is lighter and thinner than insulated glass because of its unique structure
- Vacuum Glass has a far greater U-value per unit area than triple-pane insulated glass, but is just one-sixth the thickness and weighs ten kilograms less per square meter.
- One of the most useful properties of vacuum glass is its ability to keep moisture from condensing in the spaces between its layers.
Dew condensation forms on the inner surface of insulated glass due to the temperature difference between the inner and exterior surfaces. Even when the outside temperature drops to -40 degrees Fahrenheit, the internal glass surface of Vacuum Glass stays free of condensation because of its high vacuum interspace and exceptional thermal insulation capability.
For medium and low-frequency penetrating disturbances, Vacuum Glass is an ideal sound barrier
The 6.3mm vacuum glass has a strong vacuum interspace, which effectively blocks sound transmission. Vacuum glass can reduce an external noise level of 75 decibels by 39 decibels, whereas standard laminated glass can only reduce the noise level by 29 dB, according to a weighted sound insulation study. Soundproofing against medium and low-frequency noise, such as traffic and construction noise, which we hear often and which is the most bothersome, is exceptional thanks to this product’s structure.
Vacuum Glass’ performance is unaffected by environmental variables such as location, elevation, or installation angle. Using Vacuum Glass in surroundings with much different heights than those for which it was initially designed has no effect on its temperature expansion or contraction because of the glass’s very high vacuum interspace (for example, in spacesuits).
Extremely Long Lives are Possible
With a lifespan of more than two decades, vacuum glass is an excellent choice for a long-lasting material. The flexible edge sealing materials awaken the shear pressures around the seams, which avoids the sealing failure produced by the brittle edge sealing material, which is especially critical in circumstances where there is a substantial temperature differential between inside and outdoor temperatures. Due to the help of an integrated high-efficiency getter material, Vacuum Glass may keep its remarkable performance despite extreme circumstances and material ageing for a long length of time.
