Yes. Gorilla Glass can be recycled using standard glass reclycing programs.
Is Gorilla Glass recyclable?
Will I pay more for my mobile device if it contains Gorilla Glass versus soda lime glass?
Corning sells to device manufacturers. Pricing for Gorilla Glass is based on manufacturer-specific product requirements (e.g., thickness, size) and volume. We can’t speculate on what that might mean for the retail price of a particular device.
Where is Gorilla Glass made?
Corning manufactures Gorilla Glass in the United States, Japan, and Taiwan.
What are the advantages of Corning’s fusion draw process?
Corning’s proprietary fusion process creates an unparalleled surface quality. This extraordinarily precise, highly automated process produces glass with exceptionally clean, smooth, flat surfaces; outstanding optical clarity; and inherent dimensional stability. With the right process design, the glass can be used “as drawn,” eliminating grinding and polishing processes that add cost and may introduce surface flaws. This same fusion draw process is at the heart of Corning’s industry-leading LCD glass.
What’s the difference between Gorilla Glass and Corning’s LCD glass substrates?
They serve different purposes: Gorilla Glass is a cover glass for the exterior of display devices, while EAGLE XG® is a glass substrate used within liquid crystal display panels. Therefore, many electronic devices feature both Corning Gorilla Glass and EAGLE XG. While they are formed with the same manufacturing process, the chemical compositions of the glass are also different. EAGLE XG LCD glass is an aluminosilicate composition, while Gorilla Glass is an alkali-aluminosilicate glass.
I heard that Gorilla Glass is going to be used for applications and products outside of consumer electronics. What can you tell me about that?
Gorilla Glass’s unique combination of beauty and durability offers benefits for applications beyond consumer electronics, and Corning’s research team is exploring the possibilities. Stay tuned for more information about where Gorilla Glass may appear next.
Does Corning support the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International?
Yes. In October 2011, Corning Incorporated became an official sponsor of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International through an initial cash donation. Corning was proud to announce its continued support of the organization through an additional donation on October 3, 2012. Corning’s contributions support the organization’s ongoing efforts to conserve and protect gorillas and their habitats in Africa. Learn more about the Fossey Fund and Corning’s support of gorillas.
