    Abstract: The invention relates to a glass sheet having an enamel-based coating provided on at least one of its surface, which is in direct contact with said sheet and which comprises: a glass frit, inorganic pigments and organic compounds comprising at least one cross-linked compound, said coating exhibiting a xylene resistance of at least 00double rubs, as measured using the Solvent Resistance Rub Test according to ASTM D5402-06 (2011) as modified therein. Such a glass sheet can be heat treated (for example, in view of a subsequent tempering process) and, before heat treatment, can be handled and transported without damaging the coating, can be cut and ground without causing the coating to peel off or to be damaged at the borders of the cutting line, and offer a good resistance under running water, avoiding the peeling off or destruction of the coating during edges grinding or storage or transportation.

  • Publication number: 20150044447
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to use of a particle accelerator beam to form thin layers of material from a bulk substrate. In particular embodiments, a bulk substrate (e.g. donor substrate) having a top surface is exposed to a beam of accelerated particles. In certain embodiments, this bulk substrate may comprise a core of crystalline sapphire (Al2O3) material. Then, a thin layer of the material is separated from the bulk substrate by performing a controlled cleaving process along a cleave region formed by particles implanted from the beam. Embodiments may find particular use as hard, scratch-resistant covers for personal electric device displays such as mobile phones or tablets, or as optical surfaces for fingerprint, eye, or other biometric scanning.
