The barium-borosilicate glass 7059 is an almost alkali-free sheet glass from CORNING® that features an excellent thermal shock resistance. Due to its unique electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties, the glass material has long been a standard for thin-film circuits in the electronics industry.
7059 material is made by a slot-draw process. 7059F glass, on the other hand, is fusion-drawn into glass sheets to final thickness, obtaining a flat, smooth surface finish directly from the molten glass. 7059 does not achieve the planarity of the 7059F glass. However, the flatness is sufficient for many applications. Both 7059 glass materials have a low alkali content below 0,3 %, which is an essential requirement for many electronic applications because free alkali ions in glass affect the performance, reliability, and longevity of LCD thin-film components.

Note: The production of 7059 and 7059F glass materials was terminated by CORNING® a long time ago. We, however, still stock some remaining 7059 (non-F) glass at 0,7 mm thickness. The direct follow-up glass is CORNING's 1737F. Also, we keep several other alkali-free materials with similar capabilities in stock. They work as a high-quality replacement in many cases.
