Corning Astra Glass is a precisely engineered glass substrate that enables higher pixel density for high-performance displays that panel makers require to meet consumer demand for brighter, faster, and more lifelike images. Featuring an optimum blend of low total pitch variation (TPV), low total thickness variation (TTV), and low sag, Astra Glass is thermally and dimensionally stable enough to thrive in oxide thin film transistor (TFT) backplane manufacturing processes.
Manufactured using Corning’s proprietary fusion process, Corning Astra Glass has the inherent fidelity to endure the high-temperature requirements for the design of mid-to-large-size, immersive displays in high-performance tablets, notebooks, and 8K TVs. To create these devices, panel makers must build more and more pixels onto their panels to achieve higher resolution.
Astra Glass enables a range of high-performance panels - from the top end of the a-Si space into IGZO oxide.
