EN 1279-2:2018 (E) 3 European foreword This document (EN 1279-2:2018) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 129 “Glass in building”, the secretariat of which is held by NBN. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by January 2019 and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by January 2019. Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. This document supersedes EN 1279-2:2002. The main changes compared to the previous edition EN 1279-2:2002 are: a) Measurement of the dew point of the 15 specimens was removed, the specimens are randomly selected; b) The tolerance of some temperature was increased: — During cycling, l =

± 2,0) °C; — During the slopes:

= (s ± 4,0) °C/h (for other specimens than the centred one); — During constant temperature: c = (58 ± 1) °C; c) The time to move the specimens from one cabinet to another was increased; d) The minimum storage duration before testing was reduced to 3 days; e) Test report was revised adding a full description of the test specimens; f) Annex A: Dew point was moved to part 6; g) Annex B: Measurement of the moisture content was moved to main part (sampling) and part 4 Annex E (measuring with change of temperature from 950 °C to 540 °C); h) Annex C: Karl Fisher was moved to main part (sampling) and part 4 Annex F (measuring); i) Annex D: Measurement of Tc was moved to part 4 Annex E (desiccant in bulk) or F (Karl Fisher); j) Moisture content in insulating glass units without desiccant was moved to Annex A. This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association. This European Standard “Glass in Building - Insulating glass units” consists of the following Parts: — Part 1: Generalities, system description, rules for substitution, tolerances and visual quality; — Part 2: Long term test method and requirements for moisture penetration; SIST EN 1279-2:2018

EN 1279-2:2018 (E) 4 — Part 3: Long term test method and requirements for gas leakage rate and for gas concentration tolerances; — Part 4: Methods of test for the physical attributes of edge seal components and inserts; — Part 5: Product standard; — Part 6: Factory production control and periodic tests. These parts are inextricably bound up with each other. According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

The average moisture penetration index (Iav) of five test specimens shall not exceed 0,20 (or 20 %). The moisture penetration index of any test specimen shall not exceed 0,25 (or 25 %). 6 Method of long-term test 6.1 Principle Insulating glass unit (IGU) specimens are exposed to a climate test. The initial and final moisture content of the desiccant are determined. I values for each unit tested and Iav value are calculated for each unit tested. 6.2 Number, description and selection of test specimens 15 test specimens which shall be representative of the system description (see EN 1279-1:2018, Annex A), and shall consist of two panes of 4 mm glass in accordance with EN 1279-1:2018, 5.2. If 4 mm glass is not available, the thickness as near as possible to 4 mm shall be used. The length shall be (502 ± 2) mm and the width shall be (352 ± 2) mm. The cavity width shall be 12 mm, or if not manufactured, the cavity width shall be as near as possible to 12 mm. Specimens of triple glazed units may also be tested. Length, width and cavity width should fulfil the above mentioned requirements. The I-value of the individual cavities may be different. The requirement given in Clause 5 applies to both individual cavities. After production, the test specimens shall be stored for fourteen days and additionally conditioned for a minimum of three days at standard laboratory conditions. Number the specimens by random selection. Select the specimens as indicated in Table 1. SIST EN 1279-2:2018
