Ultra-Thin Glass Protection Enhancement For Sensors And Displays

Santa Paula – Abrisa Industrial Glass, a division of Abrisa Technologies, now offers an even more comprehensive line of ultra-thin borosilicate and aluminosilicate glass solutions for use as protective windows, coating substrates and insulating or chemically compatible barriers for use on Image and Bio Sensors, Displays, Touch Panels and other portable and high contact use devices. Highly flexible substrates of 0.030 to 0.1mm thickness, (the width of a human hair), as well as damage resistant HIE™ Aluminosilicate are now available in even thinner thicknesses of 0.05 to 0.4mm.
 
According to Lisa M. Tsufura, Product Line Manager at Abrisa Technologies, “Abrisa Industrial Glass now offers the OEM even more choices for ultra-thin glass and damage resistant aluminosilicate to support device designs that seek to reduce weight and achieve low profiles while remaining durable. Ultra-Thin Glass solutions can also be used as “bolt or bond on” layers; an almost imperceptible yet functional layer to achieve damage resistance or selective optical performance when the underlying material is not well suited or is unable to be survive the processing environment.”
