Corning Iris™ Glass Named a Display Component of the Year by Society for Information Display

Post Time:May 23,2016Classify:Glass QuotationView:643

Iris™ Glass earns honors for enabling thinner displays with low-color shift - Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) light-guide plate solution, Iris™ Glass, has received a 2016 Display Component of the Year award from the Society for Information Display (SID).

Iris™ Glass has an ultra-pure glass composition that enables large size LCD TVs to reach set thicknesses of less than 5 mm. When combined with the inherent benefits of Corning’s proprietary fusion process, the Iris™ Glass composition can achieve optical performance that matches best-in-class materials and delivers high transmission and low-color shift.


The industry has historically used polymers as light-guide plate materials for edge-lit LCD TVs. Iris™ Glass outperforms polymers which can warp and expand when subjected to heat and humidity, compromising performance.


“The instability of polymers requires manufacturers to design thicker sets and devices to compensate for movement,” said Andrew Beck, commercial director, Iris™ Glass. “Replacing polymers with glass solves this problem, but standard glass compositions have not met the optical requirements, until now.”

Corning is well-positioned to address this growth opportunity in the display industry by leveraging its core competencies of glass science expertise, proprietary fusion draw process, and market leadership.


“Our commitment to help our customers stand out in the marketplace and offer more immersive displays is what drove the development of Iris™ Glass. We are excited to continue this work and remain at the forefront of the next generation of ultra-slim displays offered to the market,” Beck said.


“We are delighted to award Corning a Display of the Year Component Award for its glass light-guide plate,” said Wei Chen, SID’s Display Industry Awards Committee chairman. “The Display Industry Awards are SID’s highest honor, presented to recognize the best display products or applications introduced to the market during the previous calendar year.  On behalf of SID, we would like to commend Corning’s ongoing commitment to innovation and to helping shape the future of display performance and solutions."


Corning will have two ultra-slim edge-lit LCD modules featuring Iris™ Glass in its booth #929 at
