Corning introduced Corning Gorilla Glass 2, the next generation of the company?s damage-resistant cover glass for consumer electronic devices, at the International Consumer Electronics Show.
Corning Gorilla Glass 2 enables up to a 20 percent reduction in glass thickness, while maintaining the damage resistance, toughness, and scratch resistance. The thinner Gorilla Glass 2 enables slimmer devices, brighter images, and greater touch sensitivity. These benefits can provide electronics manufacturers with superior design flexibility as they address consumer demand for increasingly high-performing, touch-sensitive, and durable mobile devices.
Devices using Corning Gorilla Glass 2 will appear during the coming months.
Corning Gorilla Glass was introduces in 2007 and is expected to reach more than $700 million in 2011 sales, nearly triple 2010 results.
