The efficiency of glass on a roll
In addition to hundreds of potential applications, Corning® Willow® Glass also opens up new possibilities in manufacturing.
As slim as 100 microns, Willow Glass makes roll-to-roll glass processing a practical, affordable reality. Just as a printing press quickly creates copy after copy on a single roll of paper, manufacturers working with Willow Glass can apply images, coatings, electronic circuitry, and more in a fast-throughput, cost-effective roll-to-roll process.
In short, Willow Glass offers the same efficient processing techniques as thin plastics, while retaining the superior attributes of glass – transparency, impermeability, and thermo-mechanical stability.
Because it can handle processing up to 500°C – a heat that many other materials just can’t tolerate – Willow Glass unlocks new possibilities for manufacturers of smart surfaces and immersive displays.
