FORT COLLINS, Colo., Jan. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- For something that we put against our faces on a daily basis, our smartphones are shockingly packed with microbes. OtterBox and Corning are showcasing an enhanced Amplify Glass screen protection line with EPA-registered antimicrobial technology.1

“We use our phones every day and take them with us wherever we go, including to some not entirely sanitary spaces,” said OtterBox CEO Jim Parke. “Amplify Glass is now formulated with an antimicrobial agent to protect the surface of the screen protector, so you don’t have to give phone grime a second thought.”

The antimicrobial property of Amplify screen protectors is embedded into the glass so it is able to maintain its damage resistance, optical clarity and touch sensitivity.1

Amplify provides up to five-times greater scratch resistance than other glass protection options.2 Long-lasting protection against drops and bumps helps to keep the screen crystal clear. These enhanced Amplify Glass screen protectors are easy to install and compatible with OtterBox cases and coming soon for the latest Apple iPhone devices. Other versions of Amplify Glass, including Glare Guard and Edge2Edge, are also available for the latest phones from Apple, Samsung and Google.

Amplify Glass with EPA-registered antimicrobial technology is coming soon to otterbox.com.

Stop by the OtterBox booth at PEPCOM for a sneak peek of the newest glass technology from OtterBox and Corning.
