To address the possible risks to portable technologies from this hectic lifestyle, Simple Innovations LLC created iCorners™. When searching for the ideal material for this unique, protective product, Simple Innovations turned to Covestro and specifically Makrolon® 2407 polycarbonate, which satisfied the company’s need for a material that was clear and tough.

Makrolon® 2407 offers exceptional physical and mechanical properties and is proven in demanding applications. From a processing perspective, the UV-stabilized grade also offers easy release from the mold and low viscosity. 

iCorners™ help protect the body and screen of mobile devices, such as iPads® and iPhones®, without compromising their sleek design. This is achieved by keeping most of the housing exposed and only covering the very corners of the device with transparent, protective pieces. The iCorners™ are designed in such a way that they provide scratch and drop damage protection to the screen glass and housing.

When using an Apple® iPad® Smart Cover® for example, iCorners™ do not interfere with the cover’s functioning but rather enhance its use by adding drop damage protection and housing scratch protection.

Now that’s protection that doesn’t cut corners.
