Corning (www.corning.com) Gorilla® Glass is an environmentally friendly alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass designed specifically to function as a protective window for portable display devices. What really sets Gorilla glass apart from the competition is that it’s both strong and damage resistant. Its superior composition allows a deeper layer of chemical strengthening than is possible with other chemically strengthened glasses.
Gorilla glass can expand a device’s useful life because it exhibits an increased ability to resist and withstand damage when compared to devices without Gorilla glass. Gorilla glass also remains stronger over time, improves scratch resistance, and any scratches that may occur are less visible and less likely to affect the user’s visual experience.
When you choose Gorilla glass, you’ll get more than just unparalleled damage resistance and protection:
Gorilla glass offers a thinner form factor which retains its performance advantage over standard chemically strengthened substrates. Currently, Gorilla glass is available as-drawn in thicknesses ranging from .55 mm ? 2.0 mm.
Because it is formed using Corning’s proprietary fusion process, Gorilla glass offers the same high-quality pristine surface available with all of our high-technology display substrates. This feature offers the ability to use the glass “as drawn,” eliminating lapping and polishing processes which can introduce surface damage.
Gorilla glass is RoHS Compliant and compliant with environmental standards. It contains no heavy metals, making it an ideal component for devices engineered to meet environmental standards.
Gorilla glass can be used as a protective cover sheet for touch screen devices without impeding the functionality of the device. Reliable strength is important for these types of devices that function in response to pressure being applied to the glass.
Gorilla glass is also available with an easy-to-clean, wear-resistant coating. This is especially useful for devices that function by touch.
