IGMA Forensic IGU Investigation Workshop to Occur at GlassBuild AmericaAugust 13th, 2019 by Editor
The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) has announced its free interactive forensic investigation workshop at the 2019 GlassBuild America conference.
Based on the session from the IGMA’s Insulating Glass Fabricator Workshop, Forensic Investigation of Insulating Glass Units (IGUs) is a hands-on session where participants are provided with insulating glass unit samples intentionally fabricated with common, known failures.
“This is certainly our most popular session at the IG Fabricator Workshop, and this is just a small sampling of what that session holds,” said Margaret Webb, IGMA executive director.
GlassBuild attendees will have the opportunity to inspect the IGUs and are provided with the tools to determine the failure mode with guidance from industry experts. Participants will learn techniques to provide a detailed IG analysis to include performing a visual inspection, dissecting the unit, writing the failure report and analyzing the failure.
Workshop participants will receive the forensic investigative worksheet form to take back to their place of employment.
The workshop will have continuous presentations on Sept. 17-18 at booth 3909.
