How We Created Edge to Edge Ballistic Glass

I will never forget the day the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus launched. I was sitting with Tech Armor Co-Founder Eric Tong in a small office in Hermosa Beach, CA. We both thought our laptops were having issues with the Internet connection as the video continuously started and stopped. We would later come to find out that the issue was with the JavaScript used by Apple in an attempt to show live Tweets scrolling across the bottom of the screen.

I think we both saw a combined 10 minutes of the entire event. We would later come to find out that this was the least of our problems.

The curve. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have curved glass screens. It was obvious that we needed to make a curved screen protector for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Could this be done? How? We had tons of questions for our engineers. The first and most important question was – How do we get a working solution available before the phones when they launch in two weeks!?!

Our initial concern was with getting the best possible PET and Ballistic Glass screen protectors manufactured and shipped to our customers for launch. We instructed our engineers to provide and immediate solution that would cover as much of the screen as possible without peeling or lifting. On top of that, this had to meet the Tech Armor standards for quality and provide a guaranteed bubble free installation.

We were excited. Right from the start our engineers met the challenge and we shipped best in class iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screen protectors in time for the big launch date.

We did not rest. We immediately went to work on a solution for our Ballistic Glass that would cover the entire curved edge of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. This was tough. It was more than designing a screen protector that worked with the curve. We needed a screen protector that would also work with Tech Armor cases!

After testing many, many different versions, we were able to perfect our Edge to Edge Ballistic Glass. If you are looking for the best screen protector for iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, then look no further. In fact, we guarantee it. Try our Edge to Edge Ballistic Glass and if you don’t like it you can return it for a full refund.
