7059 / 7059F

Low alkali barium-borosilicate glass

Typical Applications

  • Low-alkali thin film substrate for electronic components
  • Substrate for optical coatings
  • LCD Technology
  • Optical Windows
  • Sensor Technology

The barium-borosilicate glass 7059 is an almost alkali-free sheet-glass from Corning that features a good thermal shock resistance. It has been a standard of the electronics industry for thin-film circuits for a long time, which require glass materials with special electrical mechanical and thermal properties. 7059F glass is fusion drawn into glass-sheets to final thickness, obtaining a flat, smooth surface finish directly from the molten glass. 7059 is made by a slot-draw process and does not achieve the planarity as 7059F glass. Both 7059 glass materials have a low level of alkali which is less than 0,3 %. This is important for many electronic applications, because alkali ions are known to lower the performance, reliability and longevity of LCD thin-film components.

Note: The production of 7059 and 7059F materials has 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. If you search for alternative glasses please browse our web site and if you need further help in your engineering design, please do not hesitate to contact us.
