Large Area Slim Glass Substrates for TV's and Monitors Now Available from Corning

Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) today announced the commercial availability of EAGLE XG Slim glass substrates in larger generation sizes to support LCD panel manufacturing for larger applications like TV and large monitors. The announcement came at FPD International, a major industry trade show in Makuhari Messe, Japan.

Initially intended to enable lighter-weight portable devices, the EAGLE XG Slim line debuted in June with glass sizes up to Generation 5 at 0.4 mm thick. Today's announcement adds 0.5 mm glass in Generations 7 and 8-the glass sizes that support television applications and large monitors. Until now, those generation sizes have traditionally been 0.7 mm thick.

At the standard glass thickness of 0.7 mm, glass represents 10% to 25% of the module thickness for leading-edge slim TV designs. A migration to 0.5 mm will provide a tangible benefit in efforts to reduce the thickness of televisions.

"As the first to supply commercial volumes of slim glass substrates, Corning continues to lead the industry migration toward thinner devices," said Lisa Ferrero, general manager, Corning Display Technologies. "By adding larger sizes to the EAGLE XG Slim product line, Corning is helping the industry address growing consumer demand for thin and sleek televisions."

The substrates leverage the award-winning EAGLE XG composition, the industry's most environmentally friendly glass, making devices even more recyclable.

Corning produces EAGLE XG Slim at its plants in Asia, utilizing its worldwide supply chain. Samsung Corning Precision Materials Co., Ltd. also supplies the product line to customers in Korea.

Moving forward, Corning plans to further expand the EAGLE XG Slim product line by developing 0.3 mm substrates for glass sizes that support portable electronic devices.
