After the release of the Gorilla Glass 4 in late 2014, Corning has followed it up with the launch of an even better product. I present to you, the Vibrant Corning Gorilla Glass. This new technology is basically used to print on glass, and the company brags that it offers “outstanding resolution and sharpness”. See an extract of what they had to say:
With Vibrant Corning Gorilla Glass, device manufacturers can now expand their options for device design by adding multi-color, high resolution, photo-quality images to the industry’s leading cover glass solution, Corning Gorilla Glass.
“Device manufacturers today are looking for new ways to differentiate their products, without compromising important features such as durability and clarity,” said Scott Forester, director, Gorilla Glass Innovations. “Vibrant Corning Gorilla Glass provides a new opportunity for customized decoration and commercial branding and is one of several valuable product enhancements that leverage Corning’s core capabilities to meet the evolving needs of our customers.”
Using Corning’s proprietary process, ink and equipment, Corning prints a colorful, customized design for smartphones, tablets or notebooks on Corning Gorilla Glass, including gradient colors and logos, photo-quality images and multi-color decorations. Unlike traditional screen printing technologies, Vibrant Corning Gorilla Glass provides outstanding resolution and sharpness, requires shorter processing times, and produces less waste.
With this technology, device manufactures can decorate their smartphones, tablets and laptops with photo-realistic images and designs at a resolution equivalent to high-quality prints on paper. Even though the images will be printed on glass, Corning boasts it will remain as durable, vivid, and beautiful.
