9:30 – 10:30 a.m. – Workstation 8:  Hands on training to determine logical failure mode of IG units outside of the glazed sash.  The segment starts with the least intrusive visual inspection which, in many instances, can yield a root cause.  If no root cause is determined from a visual inspection the next logical step is unit deconstruction.  IG unit deconstruction will follow a methodical approach to yield a logical cause of failure.
