PanzerGlass

PanzerGlass is at least 0.4 mm thick which maintains the toughness of the glass, making it capable of sustaining shock damage.


There are several reasons why 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, because film usually only protects against scratches. PanzerGlass also protects against scratches and can absorb shock damage.

In contrast to film that often feels rough and “plastic-like”, you will not notice, that PanzerGlass is attached to your mobile device due to the fact, that it is made of real glass. Most new users feel, that they are getting a brand new screen.


PanzerGlass is designed to break if subjected to shocks or blows. If PanzerGlass does not break in those cases, you will risk the original screen being damaged.

PanzerGlass absorbs damage from shocks and with the built-in anti-shatter film, the glass will not shatter into pieces.


PanzerGlass is made of tempered glass, which is nine times stronger than ordinary glass. The hardening of the glass is a gentle process, which consists of the glass being heated at 500°C for five hours. This process is what makes the PanzerGlass so resistant.


PanzerGlass is tempered glass, that is nine times stronger than ordinary glass. PanzerGlass is made up of several layers:

The bottom layer consists of silicone that makes the glass adhere to the screen. This allows PanzerGlass to fit perfectly onto the screen of your mobile device, preventing air bubbles, and thereby preserving 100% touch sensitivity.

The middle layer of the glass consists of a anti-shatter film, which makes the glass more flexible and so it does not splinter upon breaking.

At the top of PanzerGlass there is an oleophobic coating that makes the mobile device resistant to greasy fingers and easy to clean.


Yes, PanzerGlass is made of real glass. It is custom made Japanese glass that is used for PanzerGlass. The use of glass makes is possible to ensure a high quality in terms of touch sensitivity, a crystal clear display and extra toughness.


 

In use

Most covers and cases fit with PanzerGlass. However, hard covers and cases that surround the front of the mobile device can be a problem.

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


PanzerGlass is resistant to scratches and everyday objects like keys or coins will in most cases not scratch the glass. However, PanzerGlass is, like all glass, not invulnerable to everything. Some hard or sharp objects and a certain amount of force will scratch it.

The advantage with PanzerGlass is that you cannot scratch through it so your real screen does not get scratched like with protective film.


If you have got a spot of dust under your PanzerGlass, gently remove the glass and use the supplied sticker labeled “Dust Remover”. If you do not have the sticker you can use regular clear tape. Place the sticker on the dust particle and remove. Repeat if necessary. To avoid getting more dust under the PanzerGlass be careful not to touch the sticky side of the glass.

If you find it difficult getting the air out, please use the included microfiber cloth. Push the cloth across the screen to get remaining air bubbles out. If there are 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.


The Samsung Galaxy S3 has curved edges, which is why the PanzerGlass does not go all the way to the edges. Because the screen curves near the edges, the silicone would not be able to stick, if the PanzerGlass was any wider. This would create air bubbles underneath the PanzerGlass, which would not be optimal. But all in all a Samsung Galaxy S3 will without doubt be better off with PanzerGlass than without.


Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and S6 have curved edges, which is why the PanzerGlass does not go all the way to the edges. Because the screens curves near the edges, the silicone would not be able to stick, if the PanzerGlass was any wider. This would create air bubbles underneath the PanzerGlass, which would not be optimal.. Original PanzerGlass does not cover the entire front, but it 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 Samsung Galaxy S6 is only covering to exactly that point.

Other

All phones have the disadvantage of vulnerable corners. When hit on the corners the phone’s screen can crack because the glass is not flexible and cannot bend. PanzerGlass has been through several tests where it withstood drops up to 1.5 meters’ height on to a concrete floor. Having PanzerGlass on is still an advantage if the phone’s corners are hit. If you choose to fit a PanzerGlass Premium onto your mobile device, the corners are even better protected, as it will cover the entire front.


It is possible to reuse your PanzerGlass if you are careful, when removing it. Make sure dust and impurities does not come in contact with the PanzerGlass and reinstall it immediately after it has been removed. Be aware, that the silicone coating can get worn out by many reuses, making it hard to get a perfect fit.


PanzerGlass is designed to break if excessive shocks occur. This is 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 cracked corners, this means, that your PanzerGlass has protected your phone from blows or shocks from a fall or a similar mishap.


PanzerGlass is designed to protect your phone and it increases the screen’s resistance with up to 900%. If the phone is hit hard or lands unfortunately, the screen can break even if it has PanzerGlass applied. It absorbs shocks and protects against scratches. In other words, PanzerGlass is an extra safety measure to increase your phone’s strength during your daily life.


PanzerGlass has a built-in anti-shatter film, making the glass more flexible and keeps the glass from shattering if it breaks. This makes it easy to peel off and prevents cuts from the sharp glass.


We use a hammer to show, what PanzerGlass can resist, but it is not good for the electronics inside the phone. You risk damaging internal parts of the phone, making stains on the display or even destroying the phone. Therefore we do not advise people to do this.


Sometimes there can be another glass depicted on the box. This is because we are always optimizing our products so that they have the best fit possible. Our packaging simply cannot always keep up with the process.


Removal

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