Willow Glass to succeed Gorilla Glass

Gorilla Glass has been all around us these days – found in smartphones, ultrabooks and other digital gizmos Gorilla Glass is the material that keeps your display thin, strong and scratch-free.

But the days of Gorilla Glass seem to have been numbered. Corning, the company that created Gorilla Glass, has come up with a better material that features better specs – please meet Willow Glass.

The new material is Corning’s next great product that has been designed for use in the next generation of consumer electronics. Besides sturdiness, resistance to scratches and thinness Willow Glass can also be “wrapped” around a device or a structure. Another great new feature is that Willow Glass can be processed at temperatures reaching 500 degrees Celsius – which is essential for today’s high-end displays.

What’s even better is that Willow Glass will support thinner backplanes and color filters for both organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and liquid crystal displays (LCD) in high performance, portable devices such as smartphones, tablets, and notebook computers. Finally the ultra-slim and flexible glass will make it easier to develop curved displays that can be bent if needed.

Willow Glass is expected to debut soon but it may take a while before we see it on the market.
