Processing & Protective Films for IGU

Windows are among of the first items to be installed in a new building, protecting it from the outdoor environment. For that reason it is highly vulnerable to damage during the remaining construction work, which may take months. That is why we have developed a range of solutions specifically for Insulated Glass Units (IGUs).

Thanks to an adhesive film, the glass will be immune to the external attack that can occur at any stage of the manufacturing & construction process. 

No more cleaning or replacing will be needed on completion of construction and no more late fees and disputes! Customers are satisfied and returns are almost non-existent.

How is this film applied on glass? 

The film is ideally applied in the factory during the fabrication of IGUs using an application machine. 

Walco's VX2 vertical application machine allows Novacel range to be applied to both sides of the glazing with a free margin all around to allow the joinery to be assembled without trapping the film inside.

The machine adapts to all sizes of IGU, avoiding film wastage.
