A couple of days after Corning announced the brand-new 3D Gorilla Glass, at CES 2014 at their hosted event they showcased another pinnacle of their innovative work: the world’s first antimicrobial cover glass.
This feat was achieved by incorporating an antibacterial agent into the glass surface for sustained activity. This way, Corning’s Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass inhibits the growth of algae, mold, mildew, fungi, and bacteria onto the screen surface.
It’s a really innovative product indeed, a first in its class. With it being tested with numerous manufacturers for various applications, the antimicrobial Gorilla Glass should show up on consumer products as early as this year.
