TPS® stands for Thermo Plastic Spacer. This «warm edge» technology has been launched in 1994 with more than 120 installed TPS® I.G. manufacturing lines worldwide.
A major advantage of TPS® is its production flexibility: the direct application of the thermo plastic spacer onto the glass lite significantly simplifies the processes for I.G. manufacturers. The spacer width between the lites can be varied fully-automatically for each I.G. unit during the production process. The respectively required spacer is always available and is applied as a bead out of a drum. Separate production processes are no longer needed for sawing, bending, connecting, desiccant filling and butyl-coating. Thus, the entire production mix can be manufactured on one line on the various Glaston TPS® insulating glass production lines.
