CORNING, N.Y., and TAIPEI, TAIWAN | Corning Incorporated | August 27, 2019

Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced Corning® Astra Glass received the Gold Panel Display Component Technology Award at Touch Taiwan. Corning will showcase Astra Glass, along with its other industry-leading advanced glass solutions, at Touch Taiwan 2019 in Taipei, Taiwan, Aug. 28-30 in booth #K804.

“It’s a great honor to be recognized with the Display Component Technology Award,” said Han Yim, business director, High Performance Displays, Corning Display Technologies. “This award validates Corning’s ability to design and manufacture a glass that fulfills customer requirements for high-performance notebooks, tablets, and 8K TVs.”

The Gold Panel Award – presented by Taiwan’s Industrial Development Bureau, and Ministry of Economic Affairs, along with the Taiwan Display Union Association – recognizes a company that is actively engaged in the development and production of display materials or equipment in Taiwan. Award candidates are evaluated based on three main categories: marketability, innovation, and technology.

Designed for its ability to enable the higher pixel density of high-performance displays that panel makers require to meet consumer demand for brighter, faster, and more lifelike images, Astra Glass was the only glass solution to win the 2019 Display Component Technology Award.

Also during Touch Taiwan, Han Yim will present at the Global Market and Technology Keynote on Wednesday, Aug. 28.  

“Touch Taiwan is one of the industry’s largest tradeshows of the year in Taiwan,” said Daniel Tseng, president, Corning Display Technologies Taiwan. “Corning’s participation is an opportunity for us to showcase our latest product offerings and demonstrate to customers we are innovating to meet the demands of the industry.”

In addition to Astra Glass, the Corning booth will feature:
