Corning launches Gorilla Glass NBT to touch-enabled notebooks


Corning just launched its newest cover glass, Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, designed to help protect touch notebook displays from scratches and other forms of damage that come from everyday handling and use. More about Corning's Gorilla Glass NBT after the jump.

Gorilla Glass NBT is Corning’s unique glass solution for touch-enabled notebooks. Touch is becoming the primary way consumers are interacting with their mobile devices, and with increased touch comes the potential for the glass to scratch. Scratches can result in the cover glass breaking when the devices are subject to normal day-to-day usage. 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.

“Known as the cover glass of choice, Corning Gorilla Glass now extends its exceptional capabilities into the emerging touch-enabled notebook market,” said James R. Steiner, senior vice president and general manager, Corning Specialty Materials. “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.”

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.
