With our expertise in structural thermal barrier for insulating aluminum extrusions for window, door, curtain wall, skylight and related architectural fenestration products we aim to
- help manufacturers and designers to produce high-quality fenestration products,
- contribute to energy savings at the highest level
- assist with productivity and systems to ensure that production costs are minimized, while increasing throughput.
Mechanical surface conditioning in the thermal barrier cavity
The Azon Azo-Brader™ provides mechanical surface conditioning of the extrusion cavity to ensure proper adhesion to difficult finishes. Windows and doors produced with the Azon Azo-Brader™, the structural polymer system and Azon E-Quality Audit™ procedures, as outlined in the warranty agreement and quality assurance guide, carry a ten-year warranty against polymer failure.
The *patented Azon Azo-Brader™ abrades the profile pocket to mechanically lock the polyurethane polymer with the finished surface of the aluminum profile. *U.S. Patent 5-577 951 Azo-Brader product information sheet (PDF 358 KB)
For mechanical locks – works inline with pour and debridge processing machinery
The Azon Lancer™ provides mechanical surface conditioning of the extrusion cavity to ensure proper adhesion to difficult finishes. Windows and doors produced with the Azon Lancer™, the structural polymer system and Azon E-Quality Audit™ procedures, as outlined in the warranty agreement and quality assurance guide, carry a ten-year warranty against polymer failure.

Metering, mixing and dispensing
The Azon Fillameter™ HMI with the Tornado III™ dynamic mixer, dispenses liquid two-component polyurethane polymers into the thermal barrier channel. Within minutes, the thermal core solidifies into a very strong, structural composite. The Tornado III™ dynamic mixers on the Azon pouring machines ensure the two-component structural polymers are mixed properly to produce quality thermal barrier product (the air Tornado II™ mixer type is used less commonly on standard, manual machinery).

Debridge – removal of the aluminum bridge
The Bridgemill™ is employed in the third and final step in the thermal barrier process—removal of the metal bridge from the bottom of the channel to produce a true, non-metal-to-metal structural thermal barrier composite suitable for commercial fenestration products used in the building envelope.

Dual purpose, compact machine for producing a thermal barrier
The Doser-Mill™ combines in a single machinery base, a low-pressure metering, mixing and dispensing, two-component fill machine and debridger that removes the connecting metal web under the insulating polymer.
