A method of manufacturing VIGUs and IGUs comprises providing a first lite; providing a second lite spaced apart from the first lite to form a cavity therebetween; and encircling the lites with a one piece band. Spacers of a metal solder alloy or other reflowable material are inserted between the band and the perimeter edges of the lites. The assembly is heated in an evacuated environment, causing the spacers to melt and hermetically bond to the lites, but not until the cavity has been substantially evacuated.
1. A vacuum insulating glass unit (“VIGU”) comprising: a first lite;a second lite spaced apart from the first lite to form a cavity therebetween; wherein each of the first and second lites includes a respective inward facing surface facing the cavity,a respective outward facing surface facing away from the cavity anda respective edge disposed around a periphery of the lite between the inward and outward facing surfaces andone piece hermetic band encircling the first and second lites and hermetically bonded to the respective edges of the lites to hermetic...
