A chat with Corning: what are the challenges of making tough glass?

Corning unveiled Gorilla Glass Victus 2 this week, a sequel to 2020’s Victus (and Victus+ from last year). The focus with this generation was to improve drop performance, i.e. increasing the chance that the glass will be okay after you drop your phone. Rough surfaces like asphalt and especially concrete were the main challenge.

We got to speak with Scott Forester, Division Vice President and Business Director, Glass & Operations Council at Corning, what goes into making strengthened glass. It turns out that “tough” is a moving target because phones themselves are changing.
