Corning extends EAGLE XG range of Slim LCD glass substrates

06 June 2012

Corning has extended its EAGLE XG Slim glass substrates product line to support LCD panel manufacturing for portable display applications. The announcement came at the Society for Information Display’s Display Week, an industry trade show in Boston. The move adds 0.3mm glass in Generation 6 (1,500mm by 1,800mm), which provides a significant cost reduction benefit to LCD display panel manufacturers.

“Currently, many flat-panel display manufacturers must thin the LCD glass plate through an expensive acid etching step as part of their production process,” said Andrew Beck, product line manager, Corning Display Technologies. “EAGLE XG Slim glass is naturally thin so it requires no acid etching to meet the 0.3mm target thickness and hence eliminates thinning costs completely.”

EAGLE XG Slim glass is currently used in mobile phones, tablets, notebooks, monitors, and televisions. The availability of 0.3mm substrates in Generation 6 size provides an ideal solution for emerging mobile applications, like those in the Ultrabook product category. Ultrabooks, a trademark of Intel Corporation, are notebooks that allow users to consume and produce content without sacrificing mobility.

“Emerging mobile applications are driving increased demand for thinner, lighter display panels,” Beck said. “Our EAGLE XG Slim glass helps panel manufacturers meet this demand in a more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly way.”

EAGLE XG Slim glass is produced using the award-winning, environmentally friendly EAGLE XG glass composition and Corning’s proprietary fusion process. This precise process produces glass substrates with inherent dimensional stability and exceptionally clean, smooth, flat surfaces – qualities essential to the successful manufacture of LCD displays.
