Edgetherm® PIB H-1 polyisobutylene primary sealant

Edgetherm® PIB H-1 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 high-viscosity, high-strength, 100% solids sealant based on polyisobutylene polymer formulated to impart reinforcement, resist degradation from ultraviolet light and provide low moisture permeability. It must be used with a secondary seal designed to provide structural strength.

Edgetherm® PIB H-1 Sealant features:
  • High viscosity formula resists shearing in large, heavy lites of glass
  • Retains flexibility through a wide temperature range to compensate for thermal movement of the insulating glass unit
  • Available in bulk (slug form: 7.5”D x 9.5” H, 15.5 lb/7 kg) for application by various type extruders
Edgetherm PIB H-1 offers the following benefits:
  • Easy application and handling of coated spacer bars.
  • Excellent adhesion to glass and metal through a wide temperature range
  • Low moisture vapor transmission rate
  • Non-fogging (100% solids)
  • Consistent quality
  • Resists degradation from ultraviolet light and oxidation
