Apple Supplier Corning Announces ‘Astra Glass’ that could be used for future iPads, MacBooks and 8K TVs

Apple supplier Corning has announced a new glass substrate, Astra Glass, optimized for mid-to-large-size, immersive displays in high-performance tablets, notebooks, and 8K TVs. Corning will showcase the new product at SID's Display Week.
 
Corning said Astra Glass is engineered to enable the higher pixel density of high-performance displays that panel makers require to meet consumer demand for brighter, faster, and more lifelike images. To build a display that meets those performance expectations, panel makers need a thermally and dimensionally stable glass to improve yields while achieving the desired resolution.
 
"After years of close collaboration with customers, we've learned what they need in an oxide display glass to bring 8K resolution to larger devices and TV sets - low total pitch variation, low total thickness variation, and low sag," said Han Yim, business director, High-Performance Displays, Corning Glass Technologies. "Astra Glass meets the precise, high-temperature requirements of oxide processing and joins our portfolio of display substrates, alongside Eagle XG Glass and Lotus NXT Glass, to cover the entire spectrum of our customers 'needs."
 
Astra Glass enables a range of high-performance panels - from the high end of the a-Si space into IGZO oxide, according to the vendor. Its attributes position Astra Glass as the foundation for large-size 8K TVs and high-performance notebooks and tablets with bright picture quality and fast response times.
 
Corning will also feature its other products at the event, including the Lotus NXT Glass and Gorilla Glass.
