Cars to Adopt Scratch-Resistant Gorilla Glass Soon
Corning’s Gorilla Glass, which guarantees a scratch-resistant surface and has become a standard for devices such as mobile phones and tablets, is expected to reach the automotive sector soon.
Jeffrey Evenson, Corning’s Senior Vice President, recently told MIT Technology that one premium automotive producer is scheduled to introduce this within the year.
The advantages, not only include less scratches and cracks, but it seems that the new glass is also lighter compared to what current cars use. There is one drawback though, and this involves the high price of the Gorilla Glass.
