The barium-borosilicate glass 7059 is an almost alkali-free sheet glass from CORNING that features a good 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 is made by a slot-draw process. 7059F glass is fusion drawn into glass sheets to final thickness obtaining a flat, smooth surface finish directly from the molten glass. 7059 does not reach the planarity of the 7059F glass. However, the flatness is sufficient for many applications. Both 7059 glass materials have a very low alkali content below 0,3%, which is essential for many electronic applications as free alkali ions in glass are known to affect the performance, reliability, and longevity of LCD thin-film components.

Note: The production of 7059 and 7059F glass materials have been terminated by CORNING a long time ago. We still stock some remaining 7059 (non-F) glass at 0,7 mm thickness though. The direct follow-up glass is CORNING's 1737F and please take into account that there are some other materials that you can use as a replacement in many cases.
