That said, iShieldz set out to part- ner with a true glass manufacturer, which for the category of screen pro- tection, there are only a handful of rep- utable companies on the planet. Testing glass from the world's best known glass companies became an evangelical and necessary mission for iShieldz, as it is not willing to put its name on a product that does not meet its exacting manufacturing and quality standards. After several months and testing of dozens of glass samples, iShieldz final- ly inked a deal for what it believes to iShieldz (Cont'd. from p. 4) be the strongest, best fitting tempered glass available. In January, iShieldz is announcing and will begin showing off its iShieldz TGXtreme tempered glass screen pro- tector. "Though we are not a foundry and we do not make glass, we are still confident enough in the iShieldz TGXtreme product that we will stand behind it with our industry leading, no hassles 'Lifetime Replacement Warranty,'" says Martinez. The iShieldz TGXtreme will initially be available for Apple and Samsung flag- ship devices, and be on the lookout for a form-fitting 3D curved version as well.
