MagSpin has an optical transmission of 85% in the visible region. This value, which is pretty close to the theoretical transmission of the material, is consistent among the whole body. High and homogeneous optical transmission of MagSpin provides a more clear and sharper vision than glass.
Quasistatic tests were utilized for the mechanical characterization of MagSpin. Hardness is one of the most important mechanical properties indicating resistance to scratch. Vickers hardness of MagSpin was measured as 1530 HV/10 (14-15 GPa).
Toughness value, which is associated with impact resistance, was also measured by indentation method. MagSpin produces diverse microstructure designs, varying according to specific applications. For example, the product introduced as phone screen is reinforced at the sides and the corners, where it is the most vulnerable to impact and damage during impact. Therefore toughness of MagSpin presents regional differences in certain products. Toughness value is 1.7 MPa.m1/2in transparent areas, whereas 3.5 MPa.m1/2in reinforced regions.
