LCD glass containing no heavy metals created by Corning

Corning, NY— Glass maker, Corning Incorporated, announced the commercial launch of EAGLE XG™, the industry’s first liquid crystal display (LCD) glass substrate that is free of all heavy metals.

The new material is a bid by the company to keep ahead of ever more stringent environmental regulations, and will also help in recycling LCD displays made using the glass.

EAGLE XG is the first and only LCD glass to be completely free of heavy metals, including arsenic. As with EAGLE2000, it is also free of antimony and barium, and halides such as chlorine and fluorine. These materials, added by some glass suppliers during their manufacturing process, can produce potentially harmful manufacturing by-products.
