AGC to Launch Sales of an Ultra-thin Two-sided Display Encased in Double-layer Glass

AGC, a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals and high-tech materials, has developed a technology to encase an ultra-thin two-sided display monitor in double-layer glass. The production and sales of this product, named "infoverre PARTITION series" are scheduled to begin in July 2019.

"infoverre" is a glass signage product consisting of an LCD display that is directly laminated onto glass using the special resin and lamination technology developed by AGC. Directly laminating the LCD to glass in this manner provides distinct advantages that include outstanding visibility and a spatial design that appears to float in mid-air. Since there is no need for cooling fans or LCD support fixtures, this signage solution offers the additional benefit of a slim profile that does not obstruct traffic flow.

This latest ‘infoverre PARTITION series’ combines AGC’s multi-layered glass production technology with infoverre product development and production technology to achieve an ultra-thin two-sided display monitor encased between 12–16 mm thick double-layer glass. Because the two-sided display is enclosed within sealed glass, it is not only capable of being viewed from front or back, but can also be installed in harsh environments with smoke or dust that would damage a traditional display (such as building entrances or smoking areas) and is also ideal for installation in train interiors.

Under its AGC plus management policy, the AGC Group has made a commitment to create products that add various pluses for stakeholders. Pluses for society include 'safety,' 'security,' and 'comfort,' while pluses for customers include 'new value' and 'new functionality.' Through continued application of its innovative glass signage, AGC is dedicated to pursuing technological innovations that allow it to continue providing products that add new value and exceed customers' expectations.
