Funding for IGMA Research Project Approved

The Research and Technology Committee completed the morning meetings by approving $7500 in funding to support a research project that will be carried out by the Insulated Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA).

IGMA’s project will assist in developing an improved test method for measuring the gas loss rate from a sealed insulating glass unit (IGU) and to develop a test method using a standard size IGU.

NFRC Board member Jim Larsen offered his support for funding IGMA’s research project, saying it will produce a significant return on investment by providing important research that NFRC needs to stay current with the industry.

The motion to provide the funding to IGMA passed with one abstention.
