With advancements in smartphones and tablet computers, glass for chemical strengthening plays an increasingly important role in supporting the performance of such devices. In line with these developments, glass for chemical strengthening is required to perform well not just in terms of strength, transparency and ease of thermal processing, but also maintain production costs at appropriate levels.
Created to meet these requirements, glanova is glass for chemical strengthening with an unprecedented position in glass manufacturing. Its new composition is optimal for glass for chemical strengthening: strong, clear, and easy to be thermoformed. It is made using the float process, which also ensures high-quality, low-cost manufacturing. It is glanova that achieves this unprecedented balance.
Unprecedented performance balance
glanova's most outstanding characteristic is its balance between performance and cost that breaks the conventional thinking on glass for chemical strengthening. Thanks to its newly-developed composition, glanova can keep costs down while maintaining highest-level strength, transparency and thermal processability.
Expanding the possibilities of glass
The temperature needed for thermoforming glanova is approximately 700℃, almost the same temperature as for soda-lime glass.
Because curved surfaces and shapes can be created by thermoforming at low temperatures, glanova is the best option where curved, round surfaces are required.
Processing and designs that were not possible with conventional glass for chemical strengthening can now be realized while keeping costs down.
glanova is a product that will expand the future possibilities of glass for chemical strengthening.
