PHANTOM GLASS™ COLLABORATES WITH CORNING INCORPORATED
TORONTO, Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - Starting fall 2016, Phantom Glass™ is collaborating with Corning Incorporated – an industry leader in glass technology. Phantom Glass™, a screen protection brand, will fuse its patent pending, proprietary technology with Corning's aluminum silicate based Accessory Glass 2 by Corning® to produce world class screen protectors for smartphones, tablets and digital cameras.
Existing Phantom Glass™ products are engineered to include a silicone nano-adhesion layer, which allows for easy installation and fills most existing minor surface scratches. The product is also treated with a specialized oleophobic nano-coating to ensure that fingerprints and residues wipe off with ease, while still maintaining 100% clarity.
"We are constantly innovating to ensure Phantom Glass™ is objectively the highest quality product available on the market," said Richard Waters, founder, Phantom Glass™. "Our innovation and product design, combined with Corning's glass technology, will further elevate our product offering far above the competition."
Accessory Glass 2 by Corning is designed specifically for screen protector application and is strengthened through an ion-exchange process. Compared against standard soda-lime glass, it provides:
- Improved scratch resistance: up to 5 times improvement in the force required to cause deep strength-degrading scratches, often accompanied by chipping
- Helps reduce breakage for drop events on various everyday indoor/outdoor surfaces: up to 25% increase in drop performance
"Corning has applied its proven innovation model to address screen protector applications. Accessory Glass 2 by Corning is our newest product which provides consumers with an improved user experience," said Scott Forester, director, Corning Specialty Materials. "We are delighted to work with Phantom Glass to integrate our latest innovation to enable a high-quality screen protector product with advanced scratch resistance and reduced scratch visibility."
Phantom Glass™ takes into serious consideration every element that makes up its product. Innovative manufacturing techniques, unique design and high quality components are what distinguish it from competing products. This mission for quality is the driving force behind the collaboration between Phantom Glass™ and Corning.
Phantom Glass™ with Accessory Glass 2 by Corning will be available in fall 2016.
