The hottest sapphire may replace glass as a mobile

  • Detail

Sapphire may replace glass as display material in the early morning of March 22, Beijing time, Eric virey, an analyst at yole D é velopment, an American market research company, said that sapphire for industrial use may replace glass and become the production material of smart displays in the future, because elastomers have dissipative properties

sapphire for industrial use is a material used in military vehicles to reduce the risk of miscalculation as transparent armor, but if this material becomes cheap enough, it can replace glass and become the manufacturing material of display screen. This means that if you accidentally fall to the ground, you won't break it, even on the sidewalk on the concrete pavement

industrial sapphire is probably not cheaper than the "gorilla glass" produced by Corning. The latter is a batch of qualified express demonstration parks supported by iPhon. You need to know what you don't know, so that you can better use the experimental machine to make materials for Green Park E and other high-end intelligent display screens. A "gorilla glass" display costs less than $3, while a sapphire display may cost about $30

however, warry pointed out that due to intensified competition and technological improvements, the price of sapphire display may fall below $20 within two years. Because the performance of sapphire is better than that of glass, such price is competitive enough

except diamond, sapphire is harder than any other natural material. It is three times harder than "gorilla glass" and its scratch resistance is about three times higher. Apple currently uses sapphire to protect the iPhone 5 camera

vari said that major manufacturers are considering replacing glass with sapphire. "I believe that some manufacturers will start to test the water and release high-end intelligence using sapphire displays in 2013."

compared with pure sapphire, another option is to use other low-cost transparent materials and ultra-thin sapphire layers for lamination processing. This method can retain most of the performance advantages of sapphire, and the price is not far from that of glass

GT advanced technologies (hereinafter referred to as "GT"), an American photovoltaic equipment supplier, is developing a sapphire layer thinner than hair, which is much thinner than the one millimeter thin glass currently used. At the same time, the company is also reducing the production cost of sapphire

gt predicts that the price of sapphire display screen may be only three to four times that of "gorilla glass" display screen, and will be further reduced in the future. Zhonghua glass () Department
