The product will allow firms to make curved or flexible displays
New York-based Corning Glass Technologies revealed that it would perhaps take a minimum of three years before companies start making flexible displays using its new Willow material.
Globally, firms are yet to manufacture products that can take advantage of Willow glass, which can be made in a roll almost like a printed newspaper, the company said.
Bloomberg cited Corning Glass Technologies president James Clappin as saying that the product will allow firms to make curved or flexible displays. "People are not accustomed to glass you roll up," Clappin noted.
Corning Glass Technologies launched Corning Willow Glass, an ultra-slim flexible glass in June 2012, at the Society for Information Display's Display Week trade show in Boston.
Corning Willow Glass is claimed to support thinner backplanes and colour filters for both organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and liquid crystal displays (LCD) in portable devices such as smartphones, tablets, and notebook computers.
Corning manufactures glass for Apple's iPhone in addition to several other devices, and it has recently opened an $800m facility to manufacture the bendable glass.
The introduction of the glass follows moves by firms including Google to develop wearable computing devices.
The company's Gorilla Glass, which was launched in 2007, has been used in about 1 billion devices globally, and was purchased by 33 electronics makers that include Apple, Samsung Electronics and Sony.
