Eastman Marks One-Year Anniversary of Insulating Glass Facility

February 6, 2014

Eastman recently announced it is marking the one-year anniversary of its Heat Mirror® Insulating Glass (IG) manufacturing center in Chicago. This state-of-the-art facility reportedly houses the world’s first fully automated suspended-film IG manufacturing line, which began full production in January 2013. Next-generation Heat Mirror technology can leverage advanced production automation to bring “beyond triple-pane” performance to the broader market.

By suspending from one to three clear films in the airspace of insulating glass, Heat Mirror technology creates multiple insulating spaces—without adding weight—that can buffer against heat loss or heat gain. The result is center-of-glass thermal performance, or R-value, of up to R-20 (U-value down to 0.05)—insulation that equates to a typical wall. Such performance can significantly lower energy bills and give architects, builders and homeowners the freedom to use glass however and wherever desired while still meeting aggressive energy efficiency goals.
