Why Choose Tempered Glass?


by Damon Burton July 16, 2018

When people are choosing a screen protector, there are a number of considerations. People often shy away from plastic screen protectors because they can obscure the screen and scratch easily. Other popular choices include liquid screen and tempered glass. At Red Zombie, we’re big proponents of tempered glass. Here’s a closer look at why we believe tempered glass is the best choice for your phone.

Liquid Screen Protectors

Liquid screen protectors have made a name for themselves because they are smooth, transparent, responsive to the human touch, and lightweight. They do not bubble up when you are trying to apply them, and they are simple to clean.

Liquid screens protectors are usually more expensive than tempered glass, however. Beyond that, it is hard to see them as you apply them to your phone, so you may miss sections without even knowing it. They are also less scratch-resistant than tempered glass and may become discolored form exposure to the sun or the oils of your fingers.

Tempered Glass Screen Protectors

A tempered glass screen protector is a multi-layer protector composed of a bottom layer of absorbent silicon, PET film, and an optically clear adhesive tempered glass and oleophobic coating. And tempered glass screen protectors are up to five times stronger than regular glass.

Tempered glass screen protectors provide many of the same benefits of liquid screen protectors plus a few extras. For starters, they are usually cheaper. They also provide better scratch-resistance than liquid variations. They are highly durable. In fact, tempered glass is five times stronger than normal glass. Tempered glass is also known for its transparency. With a tempered glass screen protector, you can get a clear view of your phone’s display from any angle for optimal viewing.

Some people argue that tempered glass is tricky to apply, but Red Zombie tempered glass products come with simple instructions for fast, easy, no-fuss application. You can get thorough protection—not the patchy kind that you may end up with if you opt for liquid screen protectors instead.

While there are pros and cons to liquid versus glass screen protectors, it’s hard to argue with the price, durability, and scratch-resistance of tempered glass protectors.
