US-based leading materials science firm Corning Incorporated on Monday launched Masterpix fine glass prints featuring Corning Gorilla Glass for the Indian market.
Gorilla Glass has been used as a cover glass on 4.5 billion electronic devices globally.
The tough, damage-resistant glass that helps protect your phones and tablets is now available in India, the company said in a statement.
"We are excited to launch Masterpix in India. Consumers in the region can now have stunning photographs that will last more than a lifetime printed on optically clear, stain-resistant Gorilla Glass," said Amit Bansal, president, Corning India.
These prints can be displayed in a table top stand, mounted to a wall, or placed in a standard picture frame.
Masterpix prints come in six different sizes ranging from 4 inches by 6 inches to 55 inches by 48 inches, and two glass finishes - glossy and matte. For the gloss finish, pricing starts from Rs. 629 and goes up to Rs. 51,099, while the matte finish starts at Rs. 819 and goes up to Rs. 73,999.
Masterpix prints photos on thin, durable Gorilla Glass using UV-cured inks to create vibrant, colourful glass prints that are scratch-resistant, stain-resistant and easy to clean.
It was launched in the US in 2014 and has been recognised by an industry expert for its archival quality prints.
"Gorilla Glass was initially used as a cover glass to help protect electronic devices," said Pradeepak Malvai, commercial director, New Emerging Business, Corning India. "Now we use it to preserve your most cherished photographs. Masterpix is another example of Corning pursuing a new market for an existing product."
