Corning brings stronger, more flexible automotive-grade Gorilla Glass to CES 2019

Cars
[MUSIC] The vehicles of tomorrow are gonna have more and more screens in them. And what goes in front of those screens? Glass, and that means that there's gonna be more glass in tomorrow's cars. What you wanna make sure that's safe glass, and that's why Corning the company behind Gorilla Glass for automotive is announcing two new automotive grade glass formulas for interiors of cars. Now on the exterior of the car you want the glass to be really strong, but on the interior, you want it to also be really flexible, and that's because there's a human being in the car. And if heaven forbid something happens, you don't want that glass to shatter or break if you have an impact on it Gorilla glass for automotives for the interior is special because it is more flexible. So they actually put it through 900 megapascals of impact to make sure that it doesn't shatter on impact. It actually flexes a considerable amount. And that's just the first formulation. The second 3D formulation is actually so flexible that it can be cold formed into interesting shapes, and that allows auto makers to get really creative with using the glass On things like curve displays or curve center consoles. And beyond that, Corning is offering all sorts of new technologies are far as anti-reflective coating, anti-glare coatings to make sure that the glass is gonna be pleasing to the eye and to the touch in the car. But they're not resting on their laurels for the exterior. Because Gorilla Glass for the exterior is so lightweight, they're actually experimenting with some new ways to put display technology into it and goodness knows what in the future. Now Corning's already partnered with about 20 automakers to bring this cool new glass technology into the cars of tomorrow, one of which is [UNKNOWN] which debuted a really awesome glass interior for it's new [UNKNOWN] production car. Be sure to check out the rest of our coverage of CES 2019 for even more cool car technologies like this, over on theroadsohw.com. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
