Corning readying second-gen Gorilla Glass for CES

updated 06:50 pm EST, Thu January 5, 2012

Updated tech said to expand design possibilities

Corning has announced that it is set to introduce an improved version of its popular Gorilla Glass technology next week at CES. The second-generation formula, referred to as Gorilla Glass 2, is said to provide expanded flexibility for touchscreen devices with smaller form factors.

The current formula, known as alkali-aluminosilicate, offers improved scratch resistance and toughness compared to standard soda-lime glass, enabling companies to build devices with thin and durable touchscreens. The technology has proven popular for high-end smartphones and tablets.

Corning has yet to fully detail the improvements of Gorilla Glass 2, though the company will provide additional information on Monday in an official introduction.
