SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InvisibleShield®, the leading global brand and innovator in screen protection, today announced InvisibleShield Sapphire Defense™, a proprietary, new-to-the-world hybrid glass screen protector. Infused with sapphire, one of the hardest gemstones in the world second only to diamonds, Sapphire Defense provides the most advanced impact and scratch protection available for mobile device screens. With more than 120 million units sold worldwide, InvisibleShield is the No. 1 selling* industry standard for screen protection and the most trusted brand in the industry.

Using the latest technological breakthroughs and materials scientifically proven to absorb and redistribute impact, Sapphire Defense is the ultimate combination of sapphire, glass and traditional screen protection:
- Sapphire-Infused: Unparalleled strength and scratch resistance
- Tempered Glass Screen Protection: Smooth tactile feel, HD clarity, smudge and scratch resistance
- Traditional Screen Protection: Self-healing surface scratches and impact protection
Together, they combine to create a virtually indestructible hybrid glass screen protector that provides 7X impact protection vs. an unprotected screen.
“Almost everyone can relate to the fear associated with accidentally dropping your smartphone onto a hard surface,” said Brian Stech, president of ZAGG. “As mobile devices have become the epicenter of our lives, we believe your screen should look as good today as the day you first purchased your device. This mentality drives us to work tirelessly to ensure mobile users can charge through life free from the fear of a damaged screen, confident to know the world’s most advanced screen protection and lifetime warranty are protecting them.”
InvisibleShield Sapphire Defense is expected to be available in early October at ZAGG.com and select retailers, for a suggested retail price of $49.99. As always, InvisibleShield backs its screen protectors with an industry-leading limited lifetime warranty and will replace the Sapphire Defense if it ever gets worn or damaged for the life of the device.
