High Ion-Exchange (HIE™) vs. Soda Lime Glass

Abrisa - HIE

Choosing the right glass for your application is crucial, as different types of glass offer varying benefits and properties. Soda lime glass, commonly used in windows and containers, is known for its affordability and versatility, but it can be chemically or heat treated to enhance its durability. On the other hand, High Ion-Exchange (HIE™) glass, such as Abrisa Technologies’ PRO-NG™ 120 and AGC Dragontrail™, provides superior scratch, impact, and thermal resistance, making it ideal for demanding environments like portable displays and industrial equipment.

Understanding the distinctions between these glass types ensures optimal performance and longevity for your specific needs.
