Stronger glass has you covered

It happens so quickly. A dropped smartphone. The cracked screen. The weeks of dragging your fingers across a jagged touch screen until you finally make it to the store for a repair. If you own a smartphone, drops are a fact of life. The cracked screen doesn’t have to be.

Challenge

Challenge

We use smartphones for just about everything: to stay in touch with friends, conduct business, buy movie tickets, and to hail a ride. The smartphone enables modern life, but modern life doesn’t stop for a cracked smartphone screen.

Consumers, especially those in the market for premium phones, are demanding stronger cover glass so they never miss out.

  • 1 Upgraded Strength:
    Outstanding results in set drop performance – the number one end-user criterion
  • 2 Upgraded Flexibility:
    To maximize strength performance and widen IOX processing ranges
  • 3 Upgraded Reliability:
    Offering one of the most robust and reliably cover glass available today

The secret to this improved strength 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.

The difference is clear: The probability that a high-end smartphone with Xensation® Up. will survive a drop unscathed is ten times greater than with conventional alumino-silicate glass.
