“We’re proud of our latest breakthrough in premium tempered-glass screen protection,” said Kunhee Shim, CEO of Patchworks Inc. “The all-new ‘ITG Edge’ product is the definition of complete screen protection. We’re already the leader in glass screen protection in Japan and other countries, and now U.S. consumers can benefit as well. Our patent-pending technology is changing the landscape of the screen protection industry.”
The premium Asahi glass on the ITG Edge has been engineered with commercial-grade silicone edges that protect the glass curvature of the iPhone 6 and Samsung S5 screen. This technology was inspired in order to meet the demands of current and future devices that incorporate curved glass screens.
“American consumers will begin looking at screen protection in a totally new light,” said Matthew Nordby, CEO, Patchworks Americas. “They can now experience high-quality glass while getting full screen coverage and protection for their curved-screen devices. Why continue to put up with scratched or broken screens? And the fit, finish, and feel of ITG products are unparalleled in the industry.”
Patchworks notes that half of iPhone owners under 35 have cracked their screen, and since 2007, iPhone owners have spent $6 billion in replacing broken iPhone screens. ITG Edge will be available for $39 for the iPhone 6 and $45 for the iPhone 6 Plus starting this month.
