Glass is widely used in our daily life. There are many kinds of glass, such as ultra-thin glass. Ultra-thin glass refers to flat glass with a thickness below 1.1mm. Compared with ordinary glass, the production process of ultra-thin glass is much higher, so the production difficulty is relatively large, but it also has many excellent characteristics.
Ultrathin glass, like the glass often seen in daily life, is an amorphous metastable solid material with no regular structure, with isotropic, no fixed melting point, degeneration and reversibility. Generally, it is made of a variety of inorganic minerals (such as quartz sand, borax, boric acid, etc.) as the main raw materials, and a small amount of auxiliary raw materials are added. It is mainly composed of silica and other oxides, which are silicate double salts. Ultrathin glass is compared with ordinary flat glass. The difference only lies in the thickness of the glass. It is generally believed that the thickness of the glass is less than 1.5mm.
The advantages of ultrathin glass, compared with ordinary glass, ultrathin glass is more transparent, more clean, bright, more beautiful. Because the thinner the glass, the better the light transmission, the more flexible, the weight will be reduced, and this is the most important advantage of ultra-thin glass.
The surface of ultra-thin glass is more flat. A lot of picture frame glass, mirror making, high-end makeup mirror, lighting and so on are also using ultra-thin glass products. Ultra-thin glass has higher sensitivity, which can be used for touch screen hand surface, tablet computers, electronic products and the surface of various precision instruments and meters, etc. It is more fast and convenient to operate and has higher flexibility.
