 Analysis belonging to the causes of leakage with Tempered Glass Curtain Wall structure:

One is the style. For example, if the leading force member aluminum profile column seriously isn't set to 20mm expansion joint in accordance with the specification, the thermal expansion and contraction from the aluminum profile will lead to stress to crack this glass and cause mineral water seepage; the sealant with substantial expansion and contraction just isn't used in the pattern; the opening window will be waterproof and sealed. Failure or insufficient availablility of sealing layers is also the reason for water leakage.

The 2nd is aluminum profiles. Some aluminum profiles do not meet the national standards, the surface coating adhesion just isn't strong or the oxide roll film is too thin and also too thick, which ends up in the failure of the actual sealant bonding; when the strength of the main column or beam of the aluminum profile is lack of, the curtain wall will be seriously deformed. Displacement as well as rain leakage.

The third may be the sealant. In some assignments, in order to spend less costs, ordinary sealant is used instead of weather-resistant silicone sealant, that can causes the joint to foam, crack or not solidify, then may cause the curtain wall to be able to seep. At the similar time, the waterproof construction network offers you advice: be sure to go to the formal building supplies store or supermarket to acquire high quality sealing elements.

The fourth is Creating Tempered Glass. If the Laminated insulated glass strength won't reach sufficient bearing potential, the glass is not really checked for thermal tension, and the glass dimensional tolerance exceeds standard, it will cause magnifying glaas or cracking or cracking that will cause water seepage.

The fifth is construction. If your aluminum frame is installed as well as sealant is not constructed according to the specifications, or if the quality is not fulfilled, it will also cause hidden dangers to the leakage.

The sixth could be to use. Some users do not understand having the curtain wall once they have stayed, causing injury to the curtain wall, collision deformation, pollution, etc.,that may cause water seepage. Some users never use neutral detergent if cleaning glass or do not rinse with clean waters after cleaning, which can cause corrosion and damage closing performance, which is also one of many causes of water seepage.

Overall, there are three essential conditions that cause mineral water seepage and leakage belonging to the curtain wall: there are generally pores, there is drinking water, and there is a new pressure difference of seepage chips. One way to prevent leakage could be to reduce the porosity, the other is to block the particular rain, so as not in order to wet the gap if you can ,, and the third would be to reduce the wind pressure difference in the wetted gap.
