what is Gorilla® Glass ?

Gorilla® glass from Corning is an alkali-aluminosilicate glass. Thanks to its substrate composition, a very high depth of layer (DOL) can be achieved through chemical toughening, making Gorilla® glass extremely scratch- and crack-resistant as well as flexible.

Gorilla® glass is mainly used as cover glass for smartphones and tablet computers. Basically, however, this glass is used in all areas demanding a combination of glass and high scratch and crack resistance.

Another property of Gorilla® glass is its high optical quality. This is attributable to the down-draw production process yielding high surface quality with minimal thickness tolerance.

Material thicknesses

Gorilla® glass is available from the manufacturer in thicknesses of 0.4 – 2.0 mm. Almost all projects, however, are confined to four standard thicknesses, i.e. 0.55, 0.7, 1.1 and 1.8 mm.

Etched Gorilla® glass

We stock etched Gorilla® glass with different degrees of gloss and in different thicknesses.
