Schott Xensation Cover glass for smartphones:August 29, 2012
Schott (http://www.schott.com/xensation/english/index.html?so=uk&lang=english) has announced the arrival of Xensation Cover glass on the mobile device market.
According to the company, it is the world’s strongest alumino-silicate glass and offers outstanding resistance to breakage and scratches, making it the ideal cover glass for touch screen devices.

“We are very pleased to announce that the first smartphone devices which use Xensation Cover glass will appear on the market in September 2012. The efforts of our R&D team, our product specialists as well as our international marketing and sales teams have paid off,” says Professor Udo Ungeheuer, Chairman of the Management Board at Schott.
Tests conducted both by the company and at customer sites using industry standard cover glass processing parameters, demonstrated that the glass is able to reach compressive stress values, which are greater than comparable materials on the market. Such values result in an up to 20% higher bending strength.
