CORNING, N.Y., March 17, 2010 – Corning Inc. announced that its Gorilla glass has been designed into the LG X300, a newly released mobile PC from LG Electronics of Seoul, South Korea. The aluminosilicate glass enables an edge-to-edge cover design and allows the LG X300, which measures just 17.5 mm thick and weighs ~2 lb, to remain thin, lightweight and portable. 

The company said that the Gorilla glass, with thicknesses ranging from 0.5 to 2.0 mm, is an environmentally friendly protective window used in high-end display devices, including cellular phones, laptop and tablet computers, and mobile devices.

It is produced with a proprietary fusion-draw process that enables the production of uniform thin sheets with a pristine surface. The glass is adaptable to scalable sheet sizes for optimal throughput. During finishing, it undergoes a chemical strengthening process that gives it the properties to make it suitable for use as a scratch-resistant LCD cover.
