SCHOTT UTG®: The flexible glass revolution

Ultra-thin glass,“UTG”, has become the industry standard for foldable displays. With about 60 years’ experience in producing thin glasses with the innovative down-draw technology, SCHOTT has won a 1992 Guinness World Record for developing the thinnest glass on Earth and developed even thinner glass of 16 μm in the laboratory. Also, SCHOTT has been the first company to mass produce UTG that can be chemically strengthened. This special member of the SCHOTT UTG® portfolio can achieve an extremely small bending radius after processing and has the potential to bend hundreds of thousands of times.

SCHOTT UTG® has enabled over a dozen innovative foldable models from leading smartphone manufacturers and help open new design possibilities in consumer electronics.

Xensation® α offers 100 % improvement in drop resistance on rough and uneven surfaces compared to other premium cover glass and is more scratch resistant than conventional LAS glass as shown in the Knoop scratch test. These outstanding glass properties are the result of SCHOTT’s longstanding expertise.
