| Extended abstract (The complete contribution will be published in the Glass Structures & Engineering journal).
| The functionality of glass goes far beyond the proven basic properties of this transparent material.
Glass off the roll - Thin glass is revolutionising the performance spectrum of glass and glass panes
| Thin glass – as thin as a razor blade or a human hair – is a reliable method to protect smartphone touchscreens, sensitive filters and sensors.
| There are an increasing amount of products available that offer varying degrees of natural daylight and most will be familiar with smaller scale skylights, rooflights or roof windows.
| Having tinted glass in the windows of a vehicle can have several benefits, but it is also necessary to be aware of the laws that have been put in place to regulate its use.
| Since Oribay began with its Oritape production (commercial brand for its own adhesives), 92% of their customers have already chosen this alternative.
