Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass

Thousands of bacteria live on a mobile device surface. Every tap, swipe and phone call results in further exposure of the touch surface. With the rapid growth of touch-enabled devices, this is becoming a growing concern. Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass – the first EPA-registered antimicrobial cover glass – can help. Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass:

Is formulated with antimicrobial properties to protect touch surfaces

Works continuously

Is built to last the lifetime of the device

Has the same toughness and optical clarity of Corning® Gorilla® Glass.

While touch screen technology offers an incredibly wide range of benefits, it does come at a cost: Thousands of bacteria live on a mobile device surface. That’s why Corning has developed Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass. It’s the same tough and scratch resistant Gorilla® Glass you have come to rely on, yet contains an ionic silver component which serves as an antimicrobial agent to keep the glass clean.

Registered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass is safe and non-toxic for the intended uses of display cover glass applications and architectural structures such as wall panels, doors, windows, and protective panels for frequently touched surfaces. So, as you keep demanding more from your mobile devices, it’s a good time to look for Antimicrobial Corning® Gorilla® Glass on your next smartphone. The antimicrobial protection is limited to the touch surface. Proper labeling of products incorporating Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass is required. Corning makes no direct or implied claims to protecting users.
