A vacuum insulating glass (IG) unit is provided with an array of spacers/pillars between opposing glass sheets. At least some of the spacers/pillars are coated on at least one surface thereof with a dry lubricant and/or reflective material such as silver. This coating permits the glass sheet(s) to move relative to one another during thermal expansion while minimizing the degree to which the spacers/pillars scratch or crack the glass during such relative movement. A method of making an exemplary spacer/pillar includes transforming by chemical reaction sil...
1. A thermally insulating glass panel comprising:first and second spaced apart glass substrates enclosing a low pressure space therebetween; a seal interconnecting said first and second spaced apart glass substrates so as to seal said low pressure space between said substrates; and at least one 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 dry lubricant coating of sufficient thickness so that said dry lubricant coating has a specular visibl...
