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 work.


Transparent Intelligence


The very 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.
