make a broader array of glass components mass producible.

Is "mass" here a noun? Or an adverb meaning "in a massive manner"?

Science Magazine just tweeted:
Advances in glass processing methods have accompanied & enabled some of the biggest technology revolutions.


Emerging low-temperature techniques aim to continue this trend & make a broader array of glass components mass producible.

Re: make a broader array of glass components mass producible.

Mass producible (read together) is an adjective, meaning the glass components can be produced in large quantities. I would hyphenate the two words as a compound adjective.
I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
