Corning® FLORA® Substrates

Corning's next-generation substrates reduce toxic emissions at vehicle engine start

The first 30 seconds after a vehicle starts are critical when it comes to emissions. In gasoline vehicles, that narrow window of time can account for 70 percent of the total regulated emissions that come out of a vehicle’s tail pipe. Addressing these “cold-start” emissions will allow vehicle makers to comply with strict new emissions regulations set to take effect in 2017.

Corning® FLORA® substrates are the perfect match for the cold-start emissions challenge.  Through a unique material design that significantly reduces mass, Corning® FLORA® substrates can reach operating temperature more quickly than our standard Corning® Celcor® substrates.  Discover our newest substrate innovation in over 40-years of ceramic materials science and process expertise.
