Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance is an

alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass that is better able to survive the


real-world events that most commonly cause glass failure. With its new
core composition, this glass enables improved damage resistance and
toughness by helping to prevent the deep chips and scratches that
cause glass to break.

Product Information

Optical

Benefits
Glass designed with improved native damage resistance,
- Enhances retained strength after use
- High resistance to scratch and sharp contact damage
- Superior surface quality

Refractive Index (590 nm)


Core glass*
Compression layer
Photo-elastic constant

* Core index is used for FSM-based measurements since it is unaffected by


ion-exchange conditions.
