Corning announces Gorilla Glass 6 to be stronger than ever

Corning Gorilla Glass 6 With Up to 2X Better Durability Than Its Predecessor Launched

Corning, the glass maker, on Wednesday unveiled its newest concoction - Gorilla Glass 6 - that should survive repeated drops from heights of 1 meter (3.28 feet). It also performed better from higher distances than Gorilla Glass 5. The company claims that it is their toughest glass till date. "This enables Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damage".

Corning claims to have developed and engineered an entirely new material to address the challenge of multiple drops. Not only was the glass created to better resist drops, but it was also put through the paces to resist scratches from rough surfaces. Under the same test conditions, competitive glass compositions did not survive the first drop. It's able to do so because Corning chemically strengthened the material by using higher levels of compression over their previous release.
