Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Manufacturing Low-Cost Metal-to-Glass Seals for Insulating Glazing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Peter Petit
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) phase I aims to demonstrate the feasibility of constructing a novel machine for manufacturing low-cost glass-to-metal seals for insulating window glazing. Applications include vacuum glazing which insulates as well as a wall (R11 to R20), representing a… More

Durable Low-Emissivity Coating for Vacuum Glass and Glazing Surfaces Exposed to the Environment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Peter Petit, Dr. – 262-695-7507
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Vacuum glazing requires a scratch-resistant Low-E coating. Microscopic pane spacers are required to prevent the two panes from touching under external pressure, but create high contact stresses which can scratch glass and existing Low-E coatings during pane movement with temperature change. Hard… More

Vacuum Glazing with Glass Bonding Able to Withstand ASTM-2190

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Peter Petit, Dr. – 262-695-7507
Award Amount: $155,000.00
Abstract:
Vacuum glazing has been on the market for over a decade, but its performance is poor, and its cost too high for wide adoption. Both issues stem from the use of a hard glass edge seal, which requires a high temperature manufacturing process, and which does not flex to accommodate outer pane… More
