Gorilla Glass in Cars

Is there anything more frustrating than dropping your cell phone and seeing the glass on it shatter? It can make the phone almost impossible to use and force you to pay a fortune to replace it. It’s why some cell phone manufacturers have started to incorporate Gorilla Glass into their creations. Gorilla Glass is a chemically strengthened glass that is both damage and scratch resistant. It’s preventing many people from accidentally shattering their screens when they drop their cell phones.

And it sounds like Gorilla Glass is going to be protecting more than just phones soon.

Corning, the company that created Gorilla Glass, recently teamed up with Ford to create a special type of windshield that incorporates a thin layer of Gorilla Glass into the mix. Corning first showed off how Gorilla Glass could potentially be used to protect cars at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in early 2017, and now, it appears as though Corning is pushing forward with their plan.

With all of that being said, it’s worth noting that you already have options if you want to protect your vehicle’s windshield from errant stones, hail, and all of the other things that can cause damage to it. ProCurve can provide you with specially-designed curved glass for your vehicle that is very durable and sleek and prepared to offer up all the protection your vehicle needs, with or without gorilla glass.
