Asahi Glass develops Worlds Thinnest Sheet Float Glass at Just 0.1 MM
Asahi Glass Company announced today it has developed ultra-thin sheet glass manufactured using the float process, measuring just 0.1 mm, roughly the thinness of a sheet of paper. Made from alkali-free glass, which is used as a glass substrate for TFT-LCDs, AGC’s unprecedentedly thin sheet float glass will be used in next-generation displays, lighting, touchscreens and high-tech applications such as medical devices.
The Thin sheet glass is expected to be used in next-generation displays, lighting, touchscreens and high-tech applications such as medical devices due to its flexible shaping and light weight, as well as basic characteristics of glass such as transparency, electrical insulation and resistance to heat, chemicals and gases. AGC’s ultra-thin sheet glass will be exhibited at Display Week 2011, which will be held by the Society for Information Display (SID) in Los Angeles, California from May 17
