A vacuum insulating glass (IG) unit is provided with an array of pillars or supports between opposing glass sheets. At least some of the pillars are coated on at least one surface thereof with a dry lubricant material such as diamond like carbon (DLC). This coating permits the glass sheet(s) to move relative to one another during thermal expansion while minimizing the degree to which the pillars scratch or crack the glass during such relative movement. The provision of such coating(s) minimizes pillar scratching of the glass and/or pillars inducing inden...
[ I claim:] [1.]1. A thermally insulating glass panel comprising:first and second spaced apart glass substrates enclosing a low pressure space therebetween;a hermetic seal interconnecting said first and second spaced apart glass substrates so as to hermetically seal said low pressure space between said substrates;at least one supporting spacer disposed in said low pressure space between said first and second substrates, wherein said spacer includes a core that is at least partially coated with a hard dry lubricant coating including diamond-like carbon;wh...
