Corning Incorporated: Corning Iris(TM) Glass Named a Display Component of the Year by Society for Information Display

Iris(TM) Glass earns honors for enabling thinner displays with low-color shift

CORNING, N.Y., May 18, 2016 -
Corning Incorporated's (NYSE:GLW) light-guide plate solution,Iris(TM) Glass,
has received a 2016 Display Component of the Year award from theSociety for
Information Display(SID).

The2016 Display Industry Awards(DIAs) recognized innovative display products,
components, and applications that hold the most promise for shaping the
future of the global display industry.

Iris(TM) Glass has an ultra-pure glass composition that enables large size LCD
TVs to reach set thicknesses of less than 5 mm. When combined with the
inherent benefits of Corning's proprietary fusion process, the Iris(TM) Glass
composition can achieve optical performance that matches best-in-class
materials and delivers high transmission and low-color shift.

The industry has historically used polymers as light-guide plate materials for
edge-lit LCD TVs. Iris(TM) Glass outperforms polymers which can warp and
expand when subjected to heat and humidity, compromising performance.

"The instability of polymers requires manufacturers to design thicker sets and
devices to compensate for movement," said Andrew Beck, commercial director,
Iris(TM) Glass. "Replacing polymers with glass solves this problem, but
standard glass compositions have not met the optical requirements, until
now."

Corning is well-positioned to address this growth opportunity in the display
industry by leveraging its core competencies of glass science expertise,
proprietary fusion draw process, and market leadership.

"Our commitment to help our customers stand out in the marketplace and offer
more immersive displays is what drove the development of Iris(TM) Glass. We
are excited to continue this work and remain at the forefront of the next
generation of ultra-slim displays offered to the market," Beck said.

"We are delighted to award Corning a Display of the Year Component Award for
its glass light-guide plate," said Wei Chen, SID's Display Industry Awards
Committee chairman. "The Display Industry Awards are SID's highest honor,
presented to recognize the best display products or applications introduced
to the market during the previous calendar year. On behalf of SID, we would
like to commend Corning's ongoing commitment to innovation and to helping
shape the future of display performance and solutions."

Corning will have two ultra-slim edge-lit LCD modules featuring Iris(TM) Glass
in its booth #929 atSID Display Week, May 24-26 at the Moscone Convention
Center in San Francisco.

In addition to Corning Iris(TM) Glass, the Corning booth will feature:

* Corning Lotus(TM) NXT Glass, a glass designed to endure the
high-temperature manufacturing processes required to make cutting-edge,
high-resolution displays;
* Corning® Gorilla® Glass for AutomotiveInterior Applications, providing new
design possibilities for automotive interior displays;
* Vibrant Corning®Gorilla®Glass, a multicolor, high resolution printing
technology with the durability of Gorilla Glass.
