Some cutie catch your eye this weekend and you don’t know where to start? And you know they have a smartphone because you’ve stalked (I’m not promoting stalking) them long enough? Next time you see them, casually walk up to them and ask them if their phone is protected with Gorilla Glass? (Cheese line? I warned you this blog wasn’t about helping you become a romantic).When you buy a new electronic device do you find yourself: A) staring at it every 10-15 minutes saying to your friends, “isn’t it nice!” B) constantly wiping it with the sleeve of your sweater? C) suffering from anxiety at the fear of it dropping and the screen cracking? I can’t help you with your obsessive compulsive disorder; however, I can offer some relief for your screen-cracking anxiety. Gorilla Glass, by Corning, the world leader in specialty glass and ceramics, is one BEAST of a glass protectant, but glass protecting glass!? Yup, Gorilla Glass is alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass that is 0.5 mm – 2.0 mm thick. According to Corning’s website, “Gorilla Glass is chemically strengthened through an ion-exchange process that creates a deep compression layer on the surface of the glass substrate. This layer acts as “armor” to reduce the introduction of flaws by end users” in other words it’s strong. Corning explains, “The glass is placed in a hot bath of molten salt at a temperature of approximately 400°C,” which is why this protectant is far beyond its competitors.
Final Palabra: Awesome invention. Hope your phone is already fitted with it.
@gorillaglass do you plan on making this for eyewear because I need it.
