In recent years, high-resolution and high-refresh-rate panels have been widely applied to large-sized TVs or signage which is called 8K as well as to mid-sized displays such as gaming and laptop monitors.
Depending on the customer's application, AGC has previously offered "AN100" applicable for all generation substrates and "AN Wizus™" produced mainly in 6th-generation for small, ultra-high-resolution panels. However, to achieve better performance and productivity for large, ultra-high-resolution, high-refresh-rate panels, the company has successfully developed "AN Rezosta™," a large area glass substrate which has a higher Young's modulus and less thermal shrinkage than AN100.
AGC continues to develop new glass material design and a wide range of glass technologies, including advanced glass production technologies based on float processes, to contribute to development of the display industry, whose technology is expected to continue to advance in the coming years.
