To make the glass capable of sustaining shock damage, it needs to have a certain thickness.
PanzerGlass is minimum 0.4 mm thick to maintain the toughness of the glass.
There are several reasons that PanzerGlass is better than film protection:
Using film protection often causes problems with air bubbles, because film is not a solid material like glass. Therefore, people often struggle with the installation of the film, as it is difficult to get it to sit properly. Most films are also very problematic to reuse, if it have been placed it wrong.
PanzerGlass is more resistant than film, film can usually only protect against scratches. But PanzerGlass protects better against scratches and can even absorb shock damage.
Even the feature that it is made of real glass means that you get a glass feeling when you have PanzerGlass on. In contrast to film where it often can feel rough and “plastic -like”. Most new users feel that they are getting a brand new screen.
PanzerGlass is designed to break when hit with strong shock damage. If PanzerGlass does not break in those cases, you will risk the original screen to be damaged.
PanzerGlass absorbs damage from shock and with the built-in PET film, you can easily remove the glass and know that you have saved your screen.
PanzerGlass is made of hardened glass which is nine times stronger than ordinary glass. The hardening of the glass is a gentle process which consists of the glass is heated in an oven at 500°C for five hours. This process is what makes the PanzerGlass able to be so resistant.
PanzerGlass is tempered glass, hardened 9 times more than ordinary glass. In the glass there are several layers:
The bottom layer consists of silicon that makes the glass adhere to the screen, and makes the glass settle perfectly on the phone without bubbles, so there is no reduced sensitivity.
The glass also consists of a PET film which makes the glass more flexible and so it doesn’t splinter upon breaking.
At the top of PanzerGlass there is an oleophobic coating that makes the phone resistant to greasy fingers and easier to clean.
Yes, PanzerGlass is made of real glass. It is specially made Japanese glass that is used in PanzerGlass.
Glass has certain advantages when put in use; it ensures high quality in terms of high-definition display and sensitivity. And of course the toughness of glass is an important feature
