NEG (Nippon Electric Glass) announced that it has succeeded in developing Dinorex UTG, a chemically strengthened glass with a thickness of 0.025 mm, the world's thinnest glass.
Dinorex UTG is an ultra-thin glass that can be bent with a diameter of 3 mm (R1.5). It is expected to be used in foldable displays, such as folding smartphones, which have been attracting attention in recent years.
This glass has high surface smoothness and thickness uniformity, and the use of this glass will enable the practical application of highly reliable foldable displays. For the development of the glass, the company is utilizing its overflow technology, which has been developed through the manufacture of thin glass for displays.
In terms of glass for foldable smartphones, Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip uses the German manufacturer's ultra-thin glass.
As the lineup of foldable smartphones is expected to diversify in the future, a model with a NEG display is likely to be one of the best options.
