Corning® Willow® Glass

Thin and flexible glass substrate for ultra-slim displays

Thinness, Strength, and 'Bend-ability' Render Visions of Wrap-around Displays

Thinness, Strength, and 'Bend-ability' on Display

Corning® Willow® Glass will help enable thin, light and cost-efficient applications including today’s slim displays and the smart surfaces of the future.

The thinness, strength and flexibility of the glass has the potential to enable displays to be “wrapped” around a device or structure. As well, Corning Willow Glass can be processed at temperatures up to 500° C. High temperature processing capability is essential for today’s high end displays, and is a processing condition that cannot be supported with polymer films.

Corning Willow Glass will enable the industry to pursue high-temperature, continuous “roll-to-roll” processes – similar to how newsprint is produced - that have been impossible until now. 

It will support thinner backplanes and color filters for both Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) and liquid crystal displays (LCD) in high performance, portable devices such as smart phones, tablets, and notebook computers.

This new, ultra-slim flexible glass will also help develop conformable, or curved, displays for immersive viewing or mounting on non-flat surfaces.

Willow Glass is formulated to perform exceptionally well for electronic components such as touch sensors, as well as leveraging glass’s natural hermetic properties as a seal for OLED displays and other moisture and oxygen sensitive technologies.
