Displays that are used outdoors, in industrial environments, and for medical or touch applications are often subject to higher loads. Even toughened float glass sometimes cannot withstand such increased demands or is not able to offer the desired safety. At this point, CONTURAN Tough AS is recommended as a suitable solution.
The glass has also been optimized for chemical tempering. It is the only glass of its kind that allows this increase in strength in the SCHOTT process chain through the anti-reflective layer. Even with these desirable properties, the substrate thickness is only 2.1 millimeters (mm).
At the same time, CONTURAN Tough AS, like the entire product line, features the proven anti-reflection coating from SCHOTT. Even under difficult lighting conditions, this ensures optimum visibility of display contents and reduces reflection by more than 90% to less than 1%.
Display manufacturers can have the newly introduced protective glass customized. Various processing options are available, from screen printing and lamination to easy-to-clean or anti-fingerprint coating. This makes the glass suitable for applications such as high-resolution displays (4K/8K) that integrate touch functions, for Human Machine Interface (HMI) systems, medical, mobile, or outdoor applications.
