Corning’s advanced glass formulas are bringing unprecedented levels of clarity, brilliance, and energy effectiveness to our connections with the rest of the world. Besides being great for consumers, they help device manufacturers operate at maximum efficiency, too.
Corning Lotus NXT™ Glass, for instance, is helping manufacturers literally re-shape the way we view displays.
Because it’s able to handle the extreme heat required for processing high-resolution LCD and OLED panels, Lotus NXT helps bring brilliant handheld devices to life while enabling thin design, vivid color, and longer battery life.
In the years since its launch, Lotus NXT has helped enable curved-edge designs. The glass has been used as a component in more than 550 million flexible OLED smartphones. It’s also enabling wearable technology and brilliant displays for automotive interiors – where curved surfaces help create an elegant, streamlined aesthetic.
Then there’s Corning® Astra™ Glass, a remarkable display glass with the future firmly in mind. The composition of Astra Glass is precisely engineered for emerging display technologies, making it particularly well-suited for high-resolution applications including tablets, monitors, and 8K televisions.
Astra Glass helps make possible some of the brightest, most lifelike display imagery possible, with true-to-life refresh rates – creating pictures so realistic, viewers can feel immersed in the visual experience. (Also behind the scenes: Corning’s legendary optical fiber, one of the reasons lightning-fast 5G connections are possible.)
The display industry has been excited about Astra Glass from the moment it hit the market. After its launch in 2019, Astra Glass won the industry’s Gold Panel Display Technology Award at Touch Taiwan, the only glass substrate to earn this prestigious recognition.
