GLAFO KNOWS GLASS!
Glafo, the Glass Research Institute, works internationally with glass
research, development, education and technical support, mainly to glass
works, processors and users of glass. It can for instance concern flat
glass (in buildings, vehicles and interiors) art glass, container glass,
mineral wool, glass fibre and the interface to other materials.
The following is an overview
of our technology areas and a who's-who of associated personnel.
Please have a look at our general projects here.
We also perform confidential contract
essence of glass, and its most important property, is its transparency.
Combining it with
other transparent materials such as metal oxides, thin metal coatings
and transparent polymers opens the way to creating a wide range of products
with intelligent multi-function features.
Smart windows, screens with genuine multitouch capabilities, transparent
solar cells and load-bearing glass structures are just a few examples.
To realise these potentials, Glafo is running a programme under the
name of "Transparent Intelligence". Read more here.
