Corning Announces Evolution in Large Gen-Size Glass at SID 2015

Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) announced Corning® EAGLE XG® Slim glass is now available in 0.4mm thickness in sizes up to Gen 8.5. This evolution in thin, large gen-size glass enables display manufacturers to produce a broader range of applications in their large-gen panel manufacturing facilities.

Large-size EAGLE XG Slim, in 0.4mm thickness, is a premium product that provides several advantages over thicker glass substrates, including: enhanced performance and higher reliability for curved TV panels; the production of thinner and lighter large-size displays; and the ability to reduce panel acid-etching requirements.

“The requirements for emerging display technologies, in both TV and mobile applications, will place greater demands on glass performance,” said Chris Hudson, commercial director, Corning Display Technologies. “To meet these requirements we’re providing our customers with additional glass substrate options to ensure they have the right product to meet current and emerging display requirements.”

“We have fully leveraged our glass manufacturing expertise to ensure that we provide this thinner product with the same high-level attribute performance that we deliver in today’s thicker large gen-size glass,” Hudson continued. “EAGLE XG Slim in 0.4mm is now available for our customers in large sizes as they look to develop and introduce premium products.”

Corning will feature an array of products from Corning Glass Technologies, June 2-4 at SID Display Week. For more information about EAGLE XG Slim or other Corning technologies, visit Corning’s booth #733 in the San Jose Convention Center.
