New Glass for Mobile-Device Displays Is Tougher than Previous Materials

Corning has announced the release of Gorilla Glass 4, its hardened glass designed for smartphone and tablet displays. The company claims it is roughly twice as tough as Gorilla Glass 3—based on its 80 percent rate of survival of a one-meter fall onto a rough surface—and thus should help keep screens from cracking when users drop their devices. The new material is in production and should be available in commercial devices by the end of 2014. Corning had an 80 percent share of the hardened-glass display business in 2013. Apple, Samsung, and other manufacturers of smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches use Gorilla Glass. (CNET)(re/Code)(Corning @ Market Watch)

Corning Announces Tougher Gorilla Glass for Device Displays

Glassmaker Corning Inc. has announced it has developed the latest version of its Gorilla Glass. The company says Gorilla Glass 3 is more damage resistant than glass previously used in device displays. It reengineered the glass based on its atomic structure and bonding properties. The company is also promoting its use in larger format, multi-touch display applications such as in education or entertainment. Corning says the new product can handle three times more force before experiencing damage and also reduces scratch visibility by 40 percent. Gorilla Glass is used in smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and TVs. Corning expects device manufacturers to announce Gorilla Glass 3’s availability in products in two or three months. (CNET)(Corning)
