SCHOTT rolls up ultrathin glass and thereby creates the material for the next generation of consumer electronics.

By means of the so called down draw technology, SCHOTT produces glass in thicknesses less than 100 micrometers – which is thinner than a human hair. This glass is flexible and stable at the same time.

Furthermore, the international technology group can roll its ultrathin glass in a smallest radius – it can be literally wrapped around a finger. With this technology, SCHOTT paves the way for the next generation of devices – ultrathin glass rolled in such a challenging geometry can easily be integrated in industrial processes and applications, in which only polymer have been used so far. The future has begun!
