German special glass manufacturer Schott introduced its new cover glass for touch panels, called Xensation Cover.

The glass is extremely hard and can be used for touch screen in smartphones and tablet PCs. It is currently considered to be the hardest product of its kind on the market.The internal tests that Schott has performed under standard conditions using process parameters commonly known to the market have shown that with a compressive strength of more than 900 MPa, the Xensation Cover material offers higher bending strength and higher ball drop strength test resistance than comparable materials currently available on the market. Furthermore, Xensation Cover has delivered stable values under low temperatures during the chemical curing process with respect to compressive stress on the surface and depth of ion exchange. Schott has made this glass available to all of the leading manufacturers in the consumer electronics industry and processing companies in the 'cover & touch' industry so that they can evaluate and test this product. Once this process has been completed, the company will be able to offer manufacturers a product that fits into their existing processes.
