CORNING, N.Y. - Corning Incorporated introduced two new auto interior glass solutions to customers at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. As automakers respond to consumer demand for more integrated and interactive displays, Corning's new Gorilla Glass for Automotive Interiors solutions are designed to address these trends, delivering the highest product performance and superior system economics.
Kunigonis said that is why Corning scientists developed the industry's first two AutoGrade(TM) cover glass solutions for auto interiors, in two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) formats. The 2D cover glass is optimized to pass industry reliability tests (using Corning's system-level design guidelines) 99% of the time, while preserving its authentic feel, superior durability, and advantaged optics for flat applications. Corning's 3D glass was developed for shaped or curved applications. It delivers the same reliability performance, when bent to shape, as the 2D cover glass.
Corning's proprietary ColdForm(TM) technology reduces shaped cover-glass part costs by up to 40% versus comparable hot-formed parts while sustaining exceptional optical performance and delivering AutoGrade(TM) reliability.
AutoGrade Corning Gorilla Glass for Automotive Interiors 2D and 3D will be available for mass production in 2019, with automakers already working it into their designs for the 2020 model year.
