A vacuum insulating glass (IG) unit. In certain embodiments, the internal cavity is evacuated (i.e., pumped out) via a pump-out aperture. A cover with one or more sealing element(s) may be provided over the pump-out aperture so that during the pump-out process air flows out of the internal cavity and through space(s) between adjacent sealing elements or sealing element portions. Following evacuation or pumping out, the sealing element(s) is/are heated and the sealing member may be pressed downwardly toward the substrate. This causes the heat-softened sea...
1. A method of evacuating an internal cavity of a vacuum insulating glass (IG) window unit, the method comprising: providing first and second spaced apart glass substrates defining an interior space therebetween; providing a passage extending to the interior space between the substrates; providing a plurality of spacers disposed between the first and second glass substrates for spacing the substrates from one another in order to maintain the interior space therebetween; positioning a sealing member over an end of the passage; evacuating the interi...
