What to Expect from Quanex at GlassBuild Connect 2020

by Guest Blogger

A year without a traditional GlassBuild show means that the fenestration industry is finding new ways to connect this autumn.

One of those ways is the National Glass Association’s (NGA’s) GlassBuild Connect, a month-long online experience that will showcase exhibitor’s products and services for buyers and prospects throughout the month of September. As with any typical GlassBuild experience, Quanex will be participating, showcasing its expert services and industry-leading product technology that can help fenestration professionals succeed. We’ll also be supplementing the experience at, where you can find weekly updates from our experts on our latest offerings.

Here’s what you can expect:

Ongoing warm-edge excellence. Backed by a longstanding history in warm-edge spacer technology, Quanex Building Products’ Super Spacer® and flexible, nonmetal-based Duralite® enable IG manufacturers everywhere to achieve superior efficiency and performance.

Super Spacer revolutionized warm-edge technology more than 30 years ago and continues to lead the market. The product is used in energy-efficient window designs in residential and commercial applications all over the world, and as architectural applications grow bolder, only Super Spacer has the established track record of proven performance that stakeholders can trust with its inherent flexibility and superior performance.

Duralite is a high-quality single-seal spacer solution ideally suited for high-volume operations where productivity is critical. Duralite comes fully preassembled with proven Quanex components, sealant, spacer and desiccant, and its one-step sealing process helps manufacturers realize improved condensation resistance and warmer edge-of-glass temperature for a higher-performing IG unit.
