PanzerGlass

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


 

In use

Most covers and cases fit with PanzerGlass. The covers where there may be problems with the PanzerGlass are often massive cases which surround the front of the phone.

Bumpers etc. can easily fit with PanzerGlass, especially the covers and cases made of rubber.


PanzerGlass is resistant to scratches and most things like keys and coins are difficult to scratch the glass with. But as all glass, the PanzerGlass can be scratched – but only with hard materials and a certain amount of force to scratch.

The advantage with PanzerGlass is that you can’t scratch through a massive glass, so your real screen doesn’t get scratched like it gets with film.


If you’ve got a spot of dust under your PanzerGlass, then gently lift the glass and then use the supplied tape “Vacuum Membrane”. If you do not have the tape, then regular clear tape can also be used. You use the tape on the dust particle and then pull the tape off and the dust particle will be removed. In this process you should be very careful not to get fingers on the sticky side of the glass, or get more dust on the glass.

Watch this video about how to remove dust:


If you find it difficult getting the air out, then use the included microfiber cloth, with this you push across the screen and get the remaining air bubbles out. If there is larger bubbles you may want to lift up the corners and sides, and let it fall back into place. For the smallest bubbles use a fingernail to push against the bubbles.


Galaxy S3 has a design which is curved at the edges of the glass and it would not be profitable to make glass that matches the curved sides. It will also be very difficult to install it properly. But without a doubt, a Galaxy S3 will still be protected better with PanzerGlass than without.


Specially the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and S6 have curved edges. Original PanzerGlass will not be able to cover this, as the silicone adhesive is unable to adhere to the curves, which creates air bubbles. PanzerGlass does still give a major protection for your mobile device and prevents damage and scratches. You can see an example of the PanzerGlass on the following picture, how it will look on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

 

As you can see on the last picture the PanzerGlass is lying flat on the screen of the phone. At the edge there is some air under the glass because of a tiny curve on the screen which is not that visible. That’s why the glass for the S6 is only covering to exactly that point.

Other

All phones suffer from the disadvantage that the corners are vulnerable. It comes from the fact that when phone’s are being hit on the corners, then the phone’s glass is being damaged because the glass is not flexible and can not be bent. PanzerGlass have been through several tests where it was able to sustain drops at of up to 1.5 meters height on a concrete floor. So it is still an advantage to have PanzerGlass on if the phone gets hit at the corners.


PanzerGlass can be reused if you are very careful. You should avoid any dust contact and reinstall PanzerGlass immediately after it has been removed. But be aware that you risk that the silicone coating on PanzerGlass gets destroyed by many reuses.


PanzerGlass is specifically designed to break if excessive shocks occur to absorb the damage and help save your original screen. PanzerGlass is most vulnerable in the corners like all glass, as it is an exposed and unprotected surface. If you are experiencing split corners, you can see it as a great advantage as PanzerGlass in this case has taken in from bumps on the corners which is also the phone’s most vulnerable spot.


With enough force, all things can be destroyed. PanzerGlass is designed to give your phone an extra safety measure to increase the screen’s resistance with up to 900%. But very hard hits or hits that strikes in very unfortunate ways, can sometimes make your mobile device’s original screen break, even though you have applied PanzerGlass to it. PanzerGlass is an extra safety measure to increase the phone’s strength in daily life by ordinary loss and shock.


In PanzerGlass there is built-in a PET-film which both makes the glass more flexible but also keeps the glass from shattering into pointy edges if it breaks. This makes it easy to peel off and protects from cuts from the sharp glass.


We use the hammer to show how great amounts of shock PanzerGlass resist, but it is not good for the phone. You may risk damaging internal parts of the phone, making stains on the display or even destroy the phone. Therefore, we will never advise people to do this.


Sometimes there can be a different looking glass on the package, if that is the case it is because we’re always optimizing our glass so that they will always fit the screen perfectly. And the packaging is not always able to catch up with that process.


Removal

You can remove PanzerGlass by lifting slowly at the corners, without getting the nails underneath. While lifting, please let the silicone coating loosen it’s grip slowly to avoid destroying the glass.
