Let the future evolve in your hands

Ultra-thin, ultra-sensitive, ultra-unique

How can you wrap a smartphone around your wrist? How can you do it without compromising the display, camera, chip or battery?
The answer to this technological innovation is ultra-thin glass from SCHOTT. It is as thin as a strand of human hair yet extremely stable and very stylish. It is indeed the ideal solution for covering bendable displays. It is also suitable as a carrier or separation material for a smartphone’s electronic components. After all, ultra-thin glass not only has to be reliably bendable, but it also has to be much thinner than it currently is…and of course more efficient!

And ultra-thin glass can do so much more. For this very reason it was honored with the German Industry Innovation Award 2016.

With your security in mind

Your smartphone knows you inside out. You trust this technology so much that you store within the most vital data about yourself. To ensure your information is protected, manufacturers have begun implementing fingerprint sensors as part of an ID check. Ultra-thin glass helps make your unique print easier to recognize.

“Smartphones will not only continue to get thinner; at the same time, they will also become more robust.” Dr. Rüdiger Sprengard, Director New Business Ultra-Thin Glass, SCHOTT

Flexible and dependable

Unbreakable even with the smallest of radii - Flexibility that’s been proven over and over again

Tough, ultra-thin glass is scratch-resistant and bendable with a radius of just a few millimeters, showing no signs of fatigue. In addition, it has excellent barrier properties and provides protection from environmental elements.

As experts in specialty glass, SCHOTT has developed a unique process for the manufacturing of ultra-thin glass: “Down-Draw” technology. SCHOTT currently offers four types of glass with different properties and has a fifth one in the works.
