Corning today introduced its newest cover glass,Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, designed to help protect touch notebook displays from scratches and other forms of damage that come from everyday handling and use.
Gorilla Glass NBT is Corning?s glass solution for touch-enabled notebooks. With increased touch comes the potential for the glass to scratch. Scratches can result in the cover glass breaking, when the devices are subject to normal day-to-day usage. Corning claims that its NBT provides enhanced scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility, and better retained strength once a scratch occurs to help protect notebook displays from breakage that can occur with lower-performing soda lime glass.
Corning says the Gorilla Glass NBT will not be more expensive, as the the cost increase will be almost negligible compared with the added strength.
Corning Gorilla Glass NBT is currently available and is expected to be featured on several notebook product models by global brands later this year.
