Quanex Building Products' Tracy Rogers to Speak at Glass Performance Days China
HOUSTON, February 27, 2012 (NYSE:NX) – Quanex Building Products announced that Tracy Rogers, director of industry relations and advanced technology, will present at Glass Performance Days (GPD) China, March 31-April 1 in Shanghai. Rogers, who is a regular speaker at GPD events, will discuss methods IG manufacturers are using to achieve R5 performance, especially the use of hard-coat, pyrolytic low-e coatings on surface #4.
"This particular performance improvement configuration can reduce condensation resistance, leading to confounding problems, including water and ice damage to the fenestration system and the wall surround," Rogers said. "For this reason, it's important for IG manufacturers to understand how improving one performance variable can negatively affect another in this situation."
Rogers' GPD China presentation, "Effects of #4 Surface Low-E Coatings on Fenestration Condensation Resistance," is listed in the Insulating Glass Units and Window Technology category on the GPD website. Visit www.gpd.fi for more information.
A 25-year fenestration industry veteran, Rogers is actively involved and has chaired various task groups and committees within industry associations, including AAMA, WDMA, NFRC, GANA, IGMA and ASTM. He holds five U.S. patents for fenestration products and has degrees in mechanical engineering, finance, business management, advanced marketing strategy and international negotiations.
