Glass forming and handling
Curved glass screens for ever beautiful smartphones
This is the new trend and we love it! The new smartphones have curved screens and smooth shapes making them just great.
This said, the glass forming process is quite demanding to get a perfect curved screen together with challenging pressures on cost of ownership.
As a market leader on isostatic graphite and on hot glass handling, Mersen has developed specific graphite grades to answer to the market expectations.
Small pores evenly spaced on the mold surface to get consistent glass surface, graphite hardness to ease screen polishing, strong resistance to oxidation, mold life time to decrease cost of ownership are just a few of the significant number of key parameters that have been taken into consideration to develop our solutions.
Market leaders (do you really want to have their names?) are working with Mersen to produce the curved screen of their new smartphones.
Check out your screen: it might have been done with our enhanced graphite solution….
