Advanced Surface Characterization Techniques: Glass Industry

Advanced Surface Characterization Techniques: Glass Industry

Description:

This webinar focuses on one of the most important Consumer sectors for mechanical surface testing instruments: The Glass industry.

Glass is a solid-like, often transparent material that is used in numerous applications in our daily lives. Glass is a unique and extremely versatile material that can be engineered to exhibit its exceptional engineering properties like transparency, strength, workability and thermal transmittance.

The glass industries comprise 3 main segments: container glass, flat glass, glass fiber.

In the glass industry, there are 4 major types of customer pains:

- Mechanical surface resistance: I want to precisely characterize the glass property of resisting external force.
- Homogeneity of mechanical properties: I need to know if our glass surfaces have homogeneous mechanical properties through their thickness.
- Coating adhesion: I want to make sure that the coating adheres well on the glass surface.
- Friction properties: I need to measure friction at room and elevated temperature.

You will learn the details of our solutions for each of the above-mentioned customer pain in This webinar.
