Global Ultra-thin Glass Market 2018-2022

About Ultra-thin Glass

Ultra-thin glass is made from raw materials like silica sand powder, soda ash, and dolomite. These substances are melted in high temperatures furnaces. Molten glass from the furnace flows onto the surface of molten tin in a continuous ribbon bath. The tin bath is then cooled and annealed in a lehr becoming flat glass. The products can be tempered, insulated, bent, and coated for different applications.
