It was only a few months ago that Corning's Gorilla Glass 2 was in the spotlight. Not content with resting on their laurels, they announced the new Willow glass product at SID 2012.
Willow glass in an ultra-thin flexible glass (50-100 micrometers) that is capable of supporting backplanes and color filters in LCD and OLED panels. Temperatures of up to 500-degrees Celsius (932-degrees Fahrenheit) can be endured and it can be employed in roll-to-roll applications.
According to Corning, Willow glass will be used to produce rigid OLED panels in manufacturing processes that require flexible glass (such as roll-to-roll). In the future it may produce flexible glass panels.
Willow glass is not intended to be used as cover glass (like Gorilla glass). It will typically be used in a “sandwhich” for OLED displays, which have a substrate layer, an encapsulation layer and then a much tougher cover glass.
Production is planned to start in Q3 2012 with one meter wide, 300 meter long rolls.
The rebranding follows the completion of the purchase of Colorado vNet Corp, led by company CEO Mike Anderson, in April 2012.
"The name 3vNet is a natural fit for this brand," said Anderson. "We understand the ups and downs the brand has had over the past few years and we want our dealers to know that we recognize that and will use it as the foundation for going forward. Keeping the past top of mind will keep us humble and make us work harder to make things better. The third generation of this brand will be different than the previous two and 3vNet customers will soon see the benefits of our efforts. Key factors in the strategy to move forward are: a more open architecture; new pricing strategies; increased product development efforts; and, more and better training. These efforts will combine to ensure our customers will receive the best this industry has to offer."
As part of the rebranding strategy, 3vNet is driven by a renewed commitment to customer service. The company has already doubled its tech support team to provide customers with an even greater level of support.
