A vacuum insulating glass (IG) unit and method of making the same. A dual edge seal including at least two separate portions is provided. The inner seal portion is flexible and hermetically seals off the low pressure area between the substrates. The outer seal portion may be less flexible, and protects the inner seal portion and provides for a bonding of the two substrates to one another. The outer seal portion may be formed by reaction injection molding (RIM), extrusion, or any other suitable method in different embodiments.
1. A thermally insulating glass panel comprising:first and second spaced apart glass substrates defining a low pressure space therebetween having a pressure less than atmospheric pressure; a plurality of spacers disposed between said first and second glass substrates for spacing said substrates from one another in order to maintain said low pressure space therebetween; a peripheral seal including at least a flexible inner seal portion and an outer seal portion; said flexible inner seal portion disposed between said first and second glass substrates for h...
