NSG Group has developed a new composition of thin glass that can be chemically tempered for the protective cover glass applications for tablets, PCs and other electronic devices.

“By utilizing our technological advantage in thin float glass manufacturing, we successfully developed a new composition, when chemically tempered, which has a higher tempered toughness than ordinary soda-lime glass with high clarity at a low cost,” the company said in a release.

“We plan to commence mass production by the end of this calendar year. In addition to our existing soda-lime cover glass, we will add this new glass composition to our line-up and expand our business in the cover glass market.”
