Corning Gorilla Glass Launched for Wearable Devices
Corning Inc. recently announced Corning Gorilla Glass SR+.
Corning Inc. recently announced Corning® Gorilla® Glass SR+. Specifically designed for wearable devices, this glass composite reportedly significantly reduces visible scratches while delivering toughness, optical clarity and touch sensitivity. In lab tests, SR+ reportedly demonstrated superior scratch resistance approaching that of alternative luxury cover materials while providing up to 70% better damage resistance against impacts and 25% better surface reflection than alternative materials. Such step improvements in optical performance enable longer battery life and improved outdoor readability.
“In early 2015, Corning launched Project Phire with the goal of engineering glass-based solutions with the scratch resistance approaching luxury cover materials, combined with the superior damage resistance of Gorilla Glass,” said Scott Forester, director, innovation products. “Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ delivers a superior combination of properties that is not available in any other material today—it is in a class of its own.”
Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ is commercially available and is expected to be on product models from leading global brands later this year.
