Ultra-thin glass is very thin and flexible glass that has all the properties of rigid glass material such as high strength, toughness, durability, high temperature stability, and rigidity. It is mainly used to increase the strength and flexibility of the finished product,which in turn enhances the life span and durability of the product. It also helps to reduce the overall weight of the product and enhances its aesthetic appeal. It is widely used in computer displays, television screens, mobile phones,and other electronic devices. It is also used as a substrate for thin film solar applications and in high power automotive batteries and lighting devices.
The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications,and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include light weight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials.
The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
