  • Publication number: 20170107753
    Abstract: A manufacturing method of a vacuum multilayer glass includes assembling an assembly including a first glass plate, a second glass plate, a sealing material and a getter material; carrying a conveyance table for conveying the assembly into a heating furnace; and heating the assembly in a reduced pressure space in the heating furnace to melt the sealing material and to activate the getter material at the same time, then solidifying the sealing material to bond the first glass plate and the second glass plate with the sealing material and to seal the reduced pressure space formed between the first glass plate and the second glass plate in a state of including the getter material, and causing the getter material to absorb gasses inside the reduced pressure space.

  • Publication number: 20170016270
    Abstract: There is provided a method of producing a vacuum sealed component including a sealing layer formed by heating glass powder, an inner side of the sealing layer including a closed space with specific air pressure that is lower than atmospheric pressure. The method includes a binder removal process of decomposing an organic binder by heating paste including the glass power and an organic binder; and a vacuum sintering process of forming the closed space by melting, at a temperature that is higher than a processing temperature of the binder removal process, the glass powder in a decompressed space with the specific air pressure that is lower than the atmospheric pressure. After the binder removal process and prior to the vacuum sintering process, an amount of residual carbon in a residue of the paste is less than or equal to 100 ppm by weight.
