A vacuum insulating glass (IG) unit. In certain embodiments, the peripheral or edge seal may include an alkali silicate, thereby enabling low cure temperatures to be used in forming the seal. This allows tempered glass substrates to retain a significant portion of their original temper strength, even after the seal is formed. In certain alternative embodiments, at least one spacer/pillar of the vacuum IG unit may be made of or include an alkali silicate.
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; an array 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; and a hermetic edge or peripheral seal including an alkali silicate, wherein said edge or peripheral seal surrounds said low pressure space between the substrates, and wherein said seal...
