Claim of US Patent No. 11,116,098


1. A dynamically bendable cover substrate comprising:a first major surface, second major surface opposing the first major surface and a minor surface connecting the first major surface and the second major surface, a thickness defined as a distance between the first major surface and the second major surface, a width defined as a first dimension of one of the first or second major surfaces orthogonal to the thickness, a length defined as a second dimension of one of the first or second major surfaces orthogonal to both the thickness and the width, and a bend axis,
wherein the cover substrate is dynamically bendable around the bend axis in a repeating cycle from a first radius of curvature to a second radius of curvature and from the second radius of curvature to the first radius of curvature; and
wherein, when an impactor having a mass of 6.8 kg impacts the first major surface at an impact velocity of 5.35 m/s to 6.69 m/s, the deceleration of the impactor is 120 g (g-force) or less.
