Wine glasses that don’t shatter? Baby bottles that don’t break? Coffee mugs that last generations?
All are possible with a new process for strengthening glass and ceramics developed by an Alfred University researcher.
Alfred University has signed a royalty agreement with Santanoni Glass and Ceramics, Inc., of Alfred Station, NY, for proprietary technology related to the strengthening of glass.
The process allows Santanoni to produce “unbreakable” glassware such as wine glasses, canning jars, bottles, tumblers, goblets and mugs at a cost that allows the products to be competitive with normal, un-strengthened glassware.
