Xensation® Up.With the introduction of Xensation® Up., the next generation of chemical strengthened lithium aluminosilicate (LAS) cover glass, SCHOTT up.graded the strength, flexibility, and reliability to prevent cracked screens. In set drop tests, Xensation® Up. can survive drops from twice the height of conventional aluminosilicate glass.
SCHOTT introduces Xensation® Up., the next generation of chemical strengthened lithium aluminosilicate (LAS) cover glass with up.graded strength, flexibility, and reliability. In drop tests, Xensation® Up. can survive drops from twice the height of conventional aluminosilicate glass.
The secret behind Xensation® Up.It is a newly improved chemical strengthening in a salt bath that increases ion exchange. The process, developed after years of research, displaces small ions, which allows larger ions to move in to create a more tightly packed internal structure on the surface.
The difference is clearThe probability that a premium smartphone with Xensation® Up. will survive a drop unscathed is ten times greater than with conventional aluminosilicate glass.
The unique glass composition of Xensation® Up. combined with more than 130 years’ experience in making specialty glass results in one of the most robust and reliable cover glass available today.
As such, it opens up completely new possibilities in smartphone screen design – for example, the ‘waterfall display’ of vivo’s 2019 / 2020 flagship phone, the vivo NEX 3, is proof of it. Other models like the 2021 vivo X60 Pro or vivo S9 clearly focus on the break resistance of the glass.
Xensation® Up. is manufactured in Jena, the glass is transported as large format panes to China, where it is processed with high precision into cover glass. With a faster, stronger chemical strengthening process, Xensation® Up. promises “Made in Germany” technical innovation with processing expertise and scale of Chinese manufacturers. These two factors unlock a new dimension in premium cover glass and flexible processing options.
Let’s take a big step towards the ultimate vision: unbreakable smartphones.
