Corning Incorporated has introduced its latest breakthrough in glass technology, Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

“Gorilla Glass 6 is an entirely new glass composition that can be chemically strengthened to give it significantly higher levels of compression than is possible with Gorilla Glass 5. This enables Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damage,” said Jaymin Amin, Vice-president of Technology and Product Development, Corning Gorilla Glass and Corning Specialty Materials. “Moreover, with breaks during drops being a probabilistic event, the added compression helps increase, on average, the likelihood of survival through multiple drop events.”

Incidentally, Corning Gorilla Glass has been designed into more than 6 billion devices by more than 45 major brands.
