The international technology group SCHOTT is pleased to announce the introduction of a chemically strengthened, alumino-silicate glass sheet solution designed for the rapidly emerging integrated touch technology market. Xensation® Cover ITS (integrated touch solution) glass, the most recent addition to SCHOTT’s cover glass portfolio, facilitates the combination of touch sensor and cover glass into one while maintaining an impressive level of mechanical and optical performance. The new glass is currently on display at the International Touch Panel & Optical Film Exhibition in Taipei from August 28-30, 2013 (Booth N214).
“We are delighted to add Xensation® Cover ITS glass to our portfolio of cover glass products,” said Lutz Gruebel, SCHOTT’s Head of Global Sales and Marketing activities of the Xensation® brand family at today’s press meeting in Taipei. “Development and adoption of integrated touch technology for devices such as tablet PCs and, more recently, notebooks has created a huge surge in demand for strong and reliable cover glass solutions. Xensation® Cover ITS glass enables the mobile device community to design and develop the most innovative, sleek and cost effective integrated touch devices knowing that they are protected by a cover glass offering impressive damage resistance and reliability.“
Xensation® Cover ITS glass has been specially designed by a team of SCHOTT experts in Germany to translate the outstanding performance benefits of Xensation® Cover glass, the world’s strongest, most reliable alumino-silicate glass for regular 2G cover glass technology, into a high performance full sheet solution for integrated touch technologies such as One-Glass-Solution (OGS). By enabling ITO sensor deposition directly on full-size, ion-exchanged sheets (that can later be cut using industry standard equipment), Xensation® Cover ITS glass allows touch panel makers to produce lighter, thinner, less complex touch module stacks and benefit from more cost efficient process chains. Furthermore, these next generation devices are protected by a cover glass offering unmatched levels of durability and reliability, offering peace of mind to device manufacturers and end-users everywhere.
Xensation® Cover ITS glass is now available as a full-sheet, ion-exchanged specialty glass in sheet sizes up to size Gen. 6 (1500 mm x 1800 mm).
The key benefits of Xensation® Cover ITS glass are:
• Outstanding impact strength enables integrated touch modules with excellent damage resistance and reliability.
• High scratch resistance and tolerance for superior aesthetic appeal and durability.
• Easy and efficient cutting of ITS sheets using industry standard equipment.
• Custom-sized ion-exchanged sheets designed for effective implementation in standard production processes.
