Platters are typically made using an aluminum or glass and ceramic substrate. In disk manufacturing, a thin coating is deposited on both sides of the substrate, mostly by a vacuum deposition process called magnetron sputtering.

I've never seen any glass platters. I've resurrected hundreds in a clean room and not seen anything but aluminum with a silcone coating and the magnetic medium suspended in the coating. Really good at keeping birds and vermin out of the yard when hung in the sunlight.
