Dewpoint testing of insulated glass helps to determine if edge seals are performing well or are near failure. We bring our dew point test equipment to your project to test your glass units. We use the ASTM E546 Insulated Glass Frost/Dewpoint test method. The dewpoint inside the insulating glass is a good indicator of the unit’s quality and longevity.
This is the test method we use…
- ASTM E546 – 08
Standard Test Method for Frost/Dewpoint of Sealed Insulating Glass Units
