In celebration of the International Year of Glass 2022 (IYoG 2022), this webinar will peer into the past and predict the future of the critical role of glass in past, present, and future optical fibers and the application that they enable.

Automakers are responding to consumers’ desire to have more connected and immersive driver experiences by deploying displays that are larger, longer, shaped, and more integrated. Because of this consumer pull, an auto-specific use-case for displays has emerged, challenging today’s incumbent cover materials with different industry requirements. The spotlight is on the auto industry’s headform-impact test (HIT), a regulatory test where cover glass performance and system-level architecture play important roles. Today, incumbent solutions frequently fail during these reliability tests, increasing supply chain costs.
In this webinar, the retained strength metric is considered when designing the industry’s first AutoGrade™ cover glass solutions for auto interiors. AutoGrade™ cover glass is optimized to pass industry reliability tests (using Corning’s system-level design guidelines) while preserving its authentic feel, superior durability, and advantaged optics for flat applications. AutoGrade™ solutions can enable connectivity for drivers with the sophistication they’ve come to expect from their smartphones.
