Xensation® Flex

Only a few years ago, flexible glass would have been science fiction rather than science fact, but SCHOTT has pushed the boundaries of what is physically possible in glass technology. Xensation® Flex was selected by key customers in the consumer electronics market to realize free-form display design.

A new definition of flexibility

Xensation® Flex won a Guinness Book of Records award in 1992 for being “The thinnest glass on Earth”. Its unique glass composition opens the possibility for chemical strengthening and retains its great folding performance after processing.
