Corning launches Gorilla Glass NBT for laptops
Corning extends its glass technology to the PC market with the announcement of the Gorilla Glass NBT – the company’s latest cover glass designed to help protect touch-enabled notebook displays from scratches and other forms of damage that come from everyday handling and use.
According to Corning, the Gorilla Glass NBT provides “enhanced scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility, and better retained strength once a scratch occurs to help protect notebook displays from breakage that can occur with lower-performing soda-lime glass.”
“We are confident that Corning Gorilla Glass NBT will outperform legacy soda-lime glass, delivering eight to 10 times more scratch resistance. In fact, for just 1 to 2 percent of a notebook’s retail price, consumers can now get the best cover glass solution: a Gorilla solution. Simply put, we believe that if you don’t have Gorilla on your device, it’s not as good.” said James R. Steiner, senior vice president and general manager, Corning Specialty Materials.
Meanwhile, Dell has also announced that it will be using the Gorilla Glass NBT on its newest products. “We’re integrating Corning Gorilla Glass NBT into our new client devices launching this fall, further enhancing our industry leading product reliability and durability.” said Sam Burd, vice president, PC Product Group, Dell.
Corning Gorilla Glass NBT is currently available and is expected to be featured on several notebook product models by leading global brands later this year.
