The Latest Armour In Smartphone Technology
Most of the consumers are worried that their beloved smart phones will be a history when it goes through the spine chilling phase of breakage.
It had always been a challenge to address this consumer grievance, up until the Gorilla Glass was introduced. During the process of chemical strengthening, it is dipped in a hot potassium salt bath for ion exchange; that acts as an amended protective layer of covering for your device and although different in its sizes, retains its enhanced strength after use.
An alkali-aluminosilicate glass, the Gorilla Glass 4 is engineered keeping in mind the rate at which a phone can be dropped. Post multiple drop tests, scientists gauged that the maximum damage that can be caused to the surface of your smart phone usually occurs when it collides head-on with a rough surface, especially concrete or asphalt. The screen being an integral part needs to remain protected at all times; not just from being scratched, but from shattering to pieces when accidentally dropped.
With greater progressive technology comes the need for a greater resisting capacity. Used by over 40 major brands in the market, Gorilla Glass has now introduced its fourth version – two times toughened sheet of glass, a light weight shield made to protect your smart phones from dust as well as scratches. With improved resistance, it helps your smart phone sustain 80% of damage control when dropped, even from a height of 1meter. This layer also has an added strength of compression that gives it an enhanced amount of flexibility to tackle clumsy drops to a greater extent.
Thinner, yet tougher, the latest version of Gorilla Glass 4 is proving to be quite a hit. Compared to the sapphire glass, Gorilla glass is made from extra fine sand paper that allows for a surface quality far superior and offers a long term durability and lasting effect.
To add a feather to the cap, it gravely reduces the tension and stress caused during the collision with a rough surface and compared to soda lime glasses with screen protectors and is far more superior in retaining its original optical clarity while simultaneously adhering to the property of being highly resistant to sharp contact damages.
