Pultrusion Technology Used for TICO PUR Energy Efficient Windows, Doors
In today’s world, architectural energy consumption accounts for 40% of total energy consumption, while windows and doors contribute over 50% of total architectural energy consumption. Energy efficiency in windows and doors has become an important factor in “raising the global architectural energy consumption stand.”
To tackle this global challenge, Huntsman Polyurethane, Owens Corning, and Collodin jointly launched TICO PUR Energy-Efficient Windows and Doors, which represent the latest window and door material technology.
Huntsman Polyurethanes’ resin system for pultrusion is a two-component system based on RIMLINE® polyol and SUPRASEC® MDI isocyanate, offering excellent wetting characteristics, accelerated line speeds, low pull forces and minimal VOC emissions. The resin system is well suited for structural profiles in demanding applications where superior strength and durability is a requirement.
TICO PUR Energy-Efficient Windows and Doors with PUR composite load-bearing components have the following advantages.
- High strength, good deformation resistance, 1,500+MPa longitudinal flexural strength and above.
- Low thermal conductivity, excellent thermal insulation, and low profile heat transfer coefficient (around 1.0w/m2k)
- Stable, easy and reliable processing, smooth incision, and great nail-holding power.
- Environmentally friendly, no volatile components, no pollution in the processing or use of windows and doors, and low energy consumption (1/57th of that of aluminum alloy profiles).
TICO PUR Energy-Efficient Windows and Doors has good thermal insulation, and with proper glass, can easily reach the 75% energy efficiency standard (1.8w/m2k and 1.3 w/m2k) or the energy efficiency requirement on passive houses (0.9 w/m2k).
The superior durability, corrosion resistance, salt spray resistance and other features enable its application in regions with different climates and environmental conditions.
Profiles featuring good sealability and low expansion rates can effectively avoid the dimension changes caused by thermal expansion or contraction, thus contributing first-rate air tightness, water tightness, sound insulation, and wind pressure resistance to whole window systems.
Diverse appearances and coating solutions are available to users for selection and customization, and wooden texture patterns or real wood decorations are also optional.
PUR energy-efficient windows and doors kick off a new era of energy-efficient green windows and doors.
