Mikron Industries, one of the most innovative and customer-focused solutions providers to window manufacturers, is launching its new EnergyCore window line at GlassBuild America 2009 at booth #1521. The breakthrough replacement window system is designed to help window manufacturers gain market share with a patent-pending, Fusion Insulated System that delivers superior thermal performance compared to fiberglass, rigid PVC and wood frame materials. Mikron“s turnkey window system provides a full array of products and accessories designed for replacement applications, all offering superior resistance to thermal conductivity. Products will come pre-tested and NFRC certified, and when combined with high performance triple-glazing systems such as those using Duralite spacers by Truseal, windows using the EnergyCore frame system will exceed current EnergyStar requirements by 50%. And with EnergyStar/DOE standards expected to tighten by 2013, the EnergyCore system is expected to exceed future standards. We set out to provide differentiating energy-saving technology, and with both OEM“s and homeowners expressing a desire for more energy-efficient replacement windows, EnergyCore delivers a competitive advantage to manufacturers, said David Wemmer, president of Mikron. We heard this in research with replacement window contractors and consumers and we know energy saving products are now more than ever, vitally important to the market. We are proud to offer this new technology in a state of the art system that will deliver higher energy performance to replacement window professionals and consumers. The EnergyCore window system offers a complete line of replacement window styles and accessory profiles, which will attract more energy and design-conscious consumers. The EnergyCore Fusion Insulated System utilizes an innovative air-cell insulating core designed to create a superior-performing thermal barrier, and features a tri-extrusion manufacturing process. Unlike manually foam-filled processes, the new tri-extrusion technology ensures frame profiles are fully insulated using material that is corner weldable and 100% recyclable. The EnergyCore window system delivers superior energy performance through a combination of this engineered core material with superior K-value thermal conductivity resistance, and thermally-optimized profile designs. Importantly, the EnergyCore window system accepts wider, high-performance triple glazing systems, such as those that use Duralite warm-edge spacers by Truseal, to deliver superior full window U-factor and R-value performance.
