Diebold, Corning Pioneer World's First Antimicrobial ATM Touch Screen
06 January 2015
Diebold plans to offer Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass as an option on its expanding line of self-service terminals, including the recently launched 5500, 3500, 3700 and 9900 series ATMs, as well as a retrofit option for existing ATMs.
"Touch screens are found on a growing number of ATMs today. Offering antimicrobial glass on frequently touched surfaces such as the ATM touchscreen will help financial institutions address the concerns of the public," said
Antimicrobial protection is limited to the glass product itself, and neither Corning nor Diebold makes any direct or implied health claims about the antimicrobial properties of the product.
