Because of the advance and giant leap of technology in today’s era everything has changed and we can hear about new products daily. Just like that, these days I am hearing a lot about Gorilla Glass. Why is that glass to tough? What material is used in it? Why does even sharpest of the sharp knives also fail to scratch it and why sharp things slip in it. Please tell me in brief about it.

Gorilla Glass is a registered trademark that specializes in toughened glass.  This glass is developed and manufactured by a company called Corning, and the Gorilla Glass product is now in its fourth release.  This glass is manufactured in Kentucky USA, Korea and in Taiwan. It is designed to be thinner, lighter and more damage resistant than its predecessor – Gorilla Glass 3.

It gets it toughness, its capacity to contain flaws and crack resistance by being submerged in hot potassium salt ion-exchange baths at templates of about 400 degrees Celsius (about 750 degrees Fahrenheit).  In these bathes, the small sodium ions that are present in the glass are swapped by the larger potassium ions.  This means that because the larger potassium ions take up more space, it creates a surface layer of high enduring compressive stress on its surface, and this gives the glass surface its improved strength.

The glass is mainly used as a cover in mobile phones, Tablets, Laptops, Ultrabooks and some Television Screens.  Some of the most popular manufacturers who use Gorilla glass are Samsung, Motorola, Microsoft and LG.
