Corning has apparently been working on a whole host of glass-related products. The company’s major release at the CES 2013 has been the Gorilla Glass 3 which comes with additional durability and many other features. However, Corning is also showing off its Willow Glass which is highly flexible and easily bendable, thus suited very well for future products.


Willow glass

We have seen a number of flexible displays this year. And there have been concept designs of entire products which are bendable. Both of these ideas are gaining traction and the likes of Samsung are already testing out the idea of fixing a flexible display to a smartphone.

Without a doubt, flexible screens are the future of mobile devices. And Corning is well aware of that. Alongside its regular offering of the Gorilla Glass 3, the company has also been working on a kind of flexible glass, the one it is branding as ‘Willow Glass.’

Showing off the flexibility of Willow Glass, the company’s executives bent a sheet of the said glass by a huge margin. It felt as flexible as a sheet of thin plastic, and yet it was glass and far more durable and strong. The sheet of Willow Glass that Corning showed off at CES 2013 is as thin 0.1mm and can easily adopt to the curves of a flexible display.

However, given the thin nature of the glass, it is not as durable as Gorilla Glass itself. That, Corning officials say, is inevitable given the physical features of Willow Glass. We are certainly looking forward to further development by Corning on this front.
