Why Glass

Outstanding Glass Properties

Glass has countless advantages that makes it a highly suitable material for endless applications. Some of these advantages include optical transparency, high flexural strength, mechanical and thermal stability. Other properties include low permeability, biocompatibility, and resistance to corrosion, abrasion, and scratches.

These properties, combined with our 3D micromanufacturing capabilities at high precision, provide a unique performance advantage to our customers. Many of our customers are active in cutting edge industries with a broad range of demanding applications.
