When you have invested into buying a shiny new iPad Air or iPad Air 2, it’s only natural you want to keep it safe and looking like new. However, the odds are against you. Statistically, damage is ten times more common than theft or loss of a device, and screen damage is one of the most costly to repair. The screen is also the most vulnerable part of your iPad and the one that needs the most care and attention. A tempered glass screen protector is designed to keep your iPad’s beautiful display safe and help you avoid unpleasant situations and hefty bank withdrawals.
Toughened Glass Protector: Scratchproof, Shockproof, Washable
Tempered glass is a special type of safety glass that is treated by temperature and special materials to increase its strength and resistance compared to normal glass. Thanks to the special manufacturing process, a tempered glass screen protector is resistant to drops, scratches and water and can serve as a reliable and durable shield for a big screen.
9H Hardness Rating + Protection On Impact
The tempered glass screen protector comes with the 9H rating according to Mohs Hardness Scale, measuring the ability of a material to resist abrasion. The 9H rating comes as second highest on the scale (with 10H reserved for diamonds) and means that the screen protector is resistant to scratches by most other materials, including copper and steel. Thus, even if your iPad is being knocked around in your backpack, no abrasions will show on the display.
Tempered glass provides some of the best protection against impact as well. Should your iPad suffer a hard drop, the screen protector will observe most of the energy from the fall, leaving the screen of the device intact. This way, the aftermath of the situation will be limited to getting a new tempered glass screen protector, rather than a costly screen replacement or purchase of a new iPad.
One of the biggest advantages of a tempered glass screen protector, compared to a plastic one, is that it preserves the original look and feel of your screen. So, after applying the protector, you will neither see nor feel any difference when interacting with the device. The special coating on the tempered glass allows it to be finger smudges, dirt and water drops to be easily cleaned.
Installing the screen protector is a piece of cake. It's definitely much easier than placing a traditional plastic screenprotector. All you need to do is wipe down your iPad’s screen, remove the adhesive cover from the protector and gently place it on the screen. After the screen protector is in place, touch the middle of the device’s screen and let the cover settle in. Press down on the screen to get rid of air bubbles – and there you have it, your iPad is safe and sound! And if you don't get it right the first tie, it's not like you've wasted a tempered glass protector. Simply rinse and wipe the glass dry and try it again.
