AGC, a world-leading supplier of glass, chemicals, ceramics and other high-tech materials and components, today announced that its Dragontrail™ damage- and scratch-resistant glass is now carried by 37 major brands of electronic devices worldwide. Sales of Dragontrail, a specialty glass used as protective cover glass in smartphones and tablets and other electronic devices, have grown 500% since its launch three years ago.
AGC produces Dragontrail with superior efficiency to stably meet global mobile device makers’ growing demand for cover glass used in smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices. Dragontrail created a sensation in January of 2011 with strength no less than six times greater than that of conventional soda-lime glass and with its pristine scratch-free finish.
Since the launch of Dragontrail, AGC has been upgrading and enhancing its technology and properties. Just recently, at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the company introduced Dragontrail™ X as the newest addition to the lineup.
Dragontrail X is distinguished by low center tension and the world’s highest level of compression stress, resulting in an extra-tough glass offering 30% greater strength than its predecessor. Its surface strength is up to eight times stronger than soda-lime glass, further enhancing the toughness of devices equipped with the product. Dragontrail X has already been favorably received by several electronics manufacturers, and is expected to be marketed in the near future.
Going forward, AGC will continue to develop technologically advanced glass solutions for customers and users worldwide.
