OPACI-COAT-500 passed structural glazing testing so well, they eventually had to shoot the glass with a shotgun to get it to break. Nice!
Important news that I neglected to report on, this occurred back in December 2009. OPACI-COAT-500® was subjected to testing under the Glass Association of North America 89-1-6(2008) Specification for Environmental Durability of Heat Treated Spandrel Glass with Applied Opacifiers.
All colors submitted passed all sections without issue. Contact ICD for a copy of the full report.
After this epic test and post: “OPACI-COAT-500® Passes Extensive 4-Sided Structural Glazing Testing” Dow Corning issued a letter to ICD on the suitability of OPACI-COAT-500® as a substrate for 4-sided structurally glazed glass applications.
In a joint project with Dow Corning, our OPACI-COAT-500® was put against the ropes in a very tough round of 4-Sided Structural Glazing tests.
