Flexible glass, such as ultra-slim Corning® Willow® Glass, produced at thicknesses lower than 200 micron has the ability to bend, while maintaining perfect barrier properties, superior surface quality, greater transparency, and high temperature processing, outperforming polymers. At the same time it has the potential to be used in roll-to-roll large area processing. These qualities make flexible glass an outstanding material for displays, touch panels, thin film batteries and photovoltaic (PV) products.
