CHEM SOURCE Type 3A-IG Molecular Sieve Beads were specifically developed to give maximum performance in Insulating Glass Units. Their unique combination of high water adsorption and low nitrogen and Argon adsorption makes CHEM SOURCE’s 3A-IG Molecular Sieve the preferred desiccant for maximizing your Insulating Glass Unit’s life, appearance and performance.
CHEM SOURCE Type 3A Molecular Sieves for Insulating Glass applications are true “Low Deflection” desiccants. This “Low Deflection” characteristic means your windows have better appearance, less distortion in reflected images and lower glass and sealant stress. This dramatically lowers the potential for sealant failure or glass breakage at low temperatures and low barometric pressure.
CHEM SOURCE 3A-IG Molecular Sieve Beads for Insulating Glass Fabrication provide the optimum properties for all Dual Seal and Hot Melt Butyl Sealed units.
CHEM SOURCE 3A-IG Molecular Sieve Beads for Insulating Glass applications are processed to have low desiccant dusting characteristics. This avoids unsightly dust formation on the bottom spacer bar between the panes of glass.
CHEM SOURCE 3A Molecular Sieve Beads for Insulating Glass Applications are available in two standard particle size distributions.
Type 3A-IG, 1.0 to 2.0 mm Beads: Recommended for all standard IG Unit configurations with spacer sizes greater than 1/4 inch.
Type 3A-IG, 0.5 to 1.0 mm Beads: Recommended for automated Desiccant filling systems, such as Lisec Machines, and narrow profile spacers ( I/4 inch and smaller ).
