Edgetherm® JS-780 polyisobutylene primary sealant

Edgetherm® JS-780 is a preferred choice as the primary seal on insulating glass units while providing the main moisture vapor seal between glass and metal spacers. It is a 100% solids sealant based on polyisobutylene polymer formulated to impart reinforcement, resist degradation from ultraviolet light and provide low moisture permeability. Edgetherm JS-780 must be used with a secondary seal designed to provide structural strength.

Edgetherm® JS-780 Sealant features:
  • Retains flexibility through a wide temperature range to compensate for thermal movement of the insulating glass unit
  • Available in black
  • JS-780 is available in pre-extruded strands for applying to spacer bars and in bulk (slug form) for application by various type extruders
  • Pre-extruded Strands: 1/8”, 3/32”, 1/16” diameter
  • Slugs: 7.5”D x 9.5” H (15 lb/7 kg)
  • 4.5”D x 7”H (4 lb/2 kg)
  • 9.5”D x 10.5”H (27 lb/12kg)
  • Drums: Steel 55 gallon
Edgetherm JS-780 offers the following benefits:
  • Excellent adhesion to glass and metal through a wide temperature range
  • Features an extremely low moisture vapor transmission rate
  • Extremely low argon permeance
  • Non-fogging (100% solids)
  • Consistent quality
  • Resists degradation from ultraviolet light and oxidation
