At CES 2012 in Las Vegas, we stopped by Corning’s booth to check out their next generation Gorilla Glass 2, which improves upon the previous hardened glass technology by going thinner while maintaining the same durability. In the video above, Corning compares Gorilla Glass 2 to the previous generation and other chemically strengthened glass – putting it through extreme flex and strength tests. You can find the strengthened glass in smartphones, tablets, TVs, and other display formats. Look for it to be featured on many Android devices in 2012.
Corning Gorilla Glass 2 is an environmentally friendly alkalialuminosilicate thin sheet glass that is better able to survive the realworld events that most commonly cause glass failure. Its superior composition allows a deeper layer of chemical strengthening than is possible with most other chemically strengthened glasses — making it both durable and damage resistant.
