A vacuum insulating glass (IG) unit and method of making the same. At least a first edge seal portion is provided on at least one of two glass substrates prior to tempering. When the substrate(s) are thermally tempered, the high tempering temperatures achieved cause the first seal portion to diffuse into or bond to the substrate. Thereafter, after substantial cooling of the substrate(s) and during assembly of the vacuum IG unit, a secondary heating is performed to form a hermetic edge/peripheral seal using at least the first seal portion (additional seal...
1. A method of making a window unit comprising the steps of:providing first and second glass substrates; providing a first seal material portion on at least one of the substrates; thermally tempering the at least one substrate with the first seal material portion thereon; following said tempering step, providing a plurality of spacers between the first and second substrates; heating the first seal material portion to a seal forming temperature less than a maximum temperature achieved during said tempering step in forming a seal that defines a sealed spac...
