Corning's Gorilla™ glass will be used as the protective cover glass for Samsung's UltraTOUCH touch-screen mobile phones.

Corning Inc. recently announced that its Gorilla™ glass was selected as the protective cover glass for Samsung UltraTOUCH mobile phones. “The full touch-screen mobile category is growing rapidly these days, and projected capacitive technology is one of the preferred touch technologies for today’s full touch-mobile market,” said Andy Kim, senior manager of Product Planning Group, Samsung Electronics. “Working with Corning and the unique composition of Gorilla glass allowed us to design a thin, light-weight, stylish mobile phone.”

Corning’s Gorilla glass is designed so that after undergoing a chemical strengthening process, it provides device manufacturers with a highly durable, scratch-resistant cover glass for touch-screens and flat portable displays. These features make Gorilla glass an ideal solution for personal electronic devices, such as mobile phones and notebook computers, and especially for products featuring touch-screen technologies.

“Touch-screen has rapidly become the standard in high-end mobile phone devices, and in today’s mobile phone market, users want technology packed into stylish designs,” said James E. Hollis, commercial director of Corning Specialty Materials. “Device makers want a product that can withstand the repetitive motion and use of touch. Corning’s Gorilla glass is ideal for these types of applications where pressure is being applied to the interface. It is a strong and damage-resistant cover glass that can withstand high-volume user interaction.”

Corning Gorilla glass is an environmentally friendly alumino-silicate glass produced with Corning’s proprietary fusion draw process, which enables the production of uniform thin sheets with a pristine surface. The result is a drawn surface that, in many cases, requires no additional finishing for some applications while providing a wide range of thickness options, low-surface roughness and superior flatness.
