success of its handheld device with  
its new laser product line. The devices  
allow non-destructive measurement of  
gas concentration of triple- and dou-  
ble-glazed units through coated and  
laminated glasses. The Sparklike laser  
product line is based on the company’s  
patented and proprietary technology.  
This laser based technology (TDLAS)  
means that the devices measure ox-  
ygen, and the results are converted to  
argon, krypton and other insulating  
gases, according to the company.

No Need to Stress  
spacers  
Give Some Space  
The new JEB 3Seal™ HM+ warm-edge spacer  
system for insulating glass units (IGUs) from J.E.  
Berkowitz was created to enable bold and ener-  
gy-efficient architectural glass solutions.  
Designed to meet tough commercial glazing  
demands, the spacer  
features triple seal technology, including an improved secondary seal made out  
of high-modulus silicone, as well as a hot-applied captive polyisobutylene (PIB)  
primary seal and a pre-applied acrylic adhesive for spacer to glass bonding.  
While traditional metal spacers are highly conductive, the JEB 3Seal HM+ spacer  
is made from thermoset structural silicone with integral 3A desiccant, which allows  
for minimal thermal conductivity, higher edge-of-glass temperatures, and an im-  
proved condensation resistance factor. With its T-shaped design, the product also  
offers shock-absorbing properties that counteract glazing stresses caused by wind,  
snow, driving rain, fluctuating temperatures and barometric pressure.

Jeffoptics Co. Ltd.’s JF-3E surface  
stress meter measures the surface  
stress of tempered glass,heat-strength-  
ened glass and annealed glass on the  
uncoated tin side without causing  
damage. The product complies with  
ASTM C1279 and ASTM C 1048.  
With only two adjustment compo-  
nents,operation can be done easily.Re-  
sults are available within 0.5 seconds.  
An operator no longer needs to judge  
the rotation angle or look at the table.  
With compact structure and industrial
