Creation of a Thermal Barrier
Creation of a thermal barrier using Pour & Debridge is a 3-step process:
The aluminum profile is extruded with a strategically placed channel to encapsulate an insulating polymer. The channel surface is conditioned with special equipment to create a "mechanical lock"
A two-part polymer is dispensed into the channel as a liquid, then hardens into a strong, structural insulating element
The metal "bridge" is mechanically removed from the bottom of the channel, eliminating the conductive aluminum element and producing a non-metal-to-metal thermal barrier
