with its 3 different series and additional features.

Isıcam Sytems K Series: This series is manufactured from high quality heat and solar control coated Low-E Glass. Compared to ordinary double glazing units, it reduces heat loss by 50% providing maximum thermal insulation in winter and it reduces solar heat gains by 40%, thusly reducing cooling costs in summer.

Isıcam Systems S Series: This series is manufactured from high quality heat control coated Low-E Glass. Compared to ordinary double glazing, it reduces heat loss by 50%, thus decreasing heating expenses and saving energy during the winter.

Isıcam Systems C Series: This Series is the classical series which provides insulation at a standard level through the Isıcam’s assurance.

 

Isıcam Systems are produced by Şen Ortaklar Cam LTD STI through the supervision of Flat Glass in which Flat Glass’s glass products are used in production of double glazing insulating units through modern technologies.

Technical Features

Isıcam system is an insulating glass unit produced by Isıcam Authorized Producers through the supervision of Şişecam Düzcam in which convenient dry air or gases are present between two or more glass panes.

Isıcam quality

  •  Isıcam’s optical and visual quality
    •  Spot faults

Isıcam’s optic and visual quality is defined as TS EN 1279/1. Accordingly, the optic and visual quality given in the related standards of glass that constitute Isıcam are applicable.

The appearance and quality conditions of single plates are at a level that do not exceed the maximum error limit; therefore, there is no need to look for an additional requirement in this regard. Nevertheless, a higher acceptance level may be included in a quality agreement between the customer and the isolation glass unit manufacturer.

Details on optic and apparent quality inherent to ISICAM’s natural structure and/or physical specifications are provided in TS EN 1279/1 Annex C.

For Isıcam spot faults, the acceptance levels applied to glass applicable to market supply and end cutting dimensions for TS EN 572/8.

Acceptance levels for spot faults at end cutting dimensions for the float glass used in Isıcam:

Defect class Surface area of the glass plate (S), m²
S ≤ 5 5 < S ≤ 10 10 < S ≤ 20
A Not required
B 1 2 4
C Unacceptable 1 1
D Unacceptable
Distance between Class B defects should be less than 500mm.


Spot fault groups

Group Size of spot faults cores (mm)
A Glass thickness greater than 0.2mm and smaller than or equal to 0.5mm
B Glass thickness greater than 0.5mm and smaller than or equal to 1.0mm
C Glass thickness greater than 1.0mm and smaller than or equal to 3.0mm
D Greater than 3.0mm

The tolerances in TS EN 1096 Coated Glass Standard are applicable for Isıcam units manufactured with above-line reflective solar control coated glass.

    •  Linear defects (scratches and scrapings)

Isıcam’s optic and visual quality is defined by TS EN 1279/1. Accordingly, the optic and visual quality given in the related standards of glass that constitute Isıcam are applicable.

The appearance and quality conditions of single panes are at a level which would not exceed the maximum error limit; therefore, there is no need to look for an additional requirement in this regard. Nevertheless, a higher acceptance level may be included in a quality agreement between the customer and the isolation glass unit manufacturer.

Details on optic and apparent quality inherent to ISICAM’s natural structure and/or physical specifications are detailed in TS EN 1279/1 Annex C.

Any linear defects are not allowed as detailed in TS EN 572/8 Standard for Glass Marketing and End-Cutting Dimensions.

In TS EN 572/8, although an observation distance is given as 2m for the identification of both standard spot and superficial defects, the observation distance will be considered as 1m as per Isıcam standard. Therefore, the defects mentioned in TS EN 572/8 and TS EN 1096 are considered a mistake when they are identified at a 1m observation distance.

    •  Other defects

As you are aware, the separating material (lucite powder, paper etc.) prevents friction of glass units when placed top of each other, and protects the glass surface against humidity and temperature variations. The powder or paper placed between the glass panes has a compound structure that does not damage the chemical structure of the glass; neither powder nor paper is used. The grain size is also at least as important as the chemical structure of the powder. Therefore, the paper and powder to be inserted between glass units are distinctively chosen and used after being checked.

Corrosion error occurs upon the damage of the chemical structure of glass through the condensation of humidity present in air or through wetting of spot-worn surfaces that occur upon friction of glass panes. Corrosion defect is noted as white spots on glass in a later stage. It may not be observed with the naked eye at the beginning stage. Therefore, corrosion should be checked by keeping stream onto the glass surfaces at a close distance from time to time. Corrosion defects are not allowed on an Isıcam unit. Therefore, care should be taken during storage and handling of glass packages. Particularly in winter season when glass packages are transferred from outside to inside of the factory, packages should not be opened and processed until the product has reached ambient temperature.

There should not be any dust, stain, sealant stains, finger prints etc. on the internal surfaces of glass panes.
