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)
