Corning has always been the market leader in strengthened mobile device glass since the early days of smart phones. Always first to advance the performance of flagship device glass, Corning intends to once again reset the standard for product performance in summer 2020 with Corning? Gorilla? Glass Victus?.
The company’s history of strengthening glass stretches back decades. It’s that history, and the knowledge that comes with it, that allows Corning to remain at the forefront of work to make glass a stronger, more durable material. While Gorilla? Glass may be the latest of Corning’s efforts to make glass more resistant to the wear, tear and stresses of everyday life, it’s far from the first.
More than 100 years ago, Corning’s borosilicate glass was the basis for its PYREX? product lines. Because of the glass’s composition, it was not only highly chemically durable but also capable of withstanding an incredibly wide range of temperatures without succumbing to thermal shock, which made it ideal for cookware and labware applications.
