Corning the makers of the strong Gorilla Glass which is found in many smartphones and tablets, has today announced a new addition to their line of products with the launch of its new Lotus Glass. A new glass substrate used within liquid crystal display panels, its intrinsic thermal stability means that it can withstand the requirements of customer processing better than many conventional glasses. This will help manufacturers offer OLED display mobile devices with lower power consumption, superior picture quality and a thinner form factor.
Lotus Glass will not distort when hot during the manufacturing process making it more practical to mount technology on the glass itself, allowing manufacturers to produce high-performance display panels.
“Corning Lotus Glass has a high annealing point that delivers the thermal and dimensional stability our customers require to produce high-performance displays,” – “Because of its intrinsic stability, it can withstand the thermal cycles of customer processing better than conventional LCD glass substrates. This enables tighter design rules in advanced backplanes for higher resolution and faster response time.”
