In this industry, we live to push the envelope while creating breathtaking architecture. Now, with Corning® Gorilla® Glass, options for creativity have become limitless and architects have the freedom to create brilliant breakthrough designs. This innovative product is changing the rules of architecture, and at Goldray Glass, we strongly believe that it is going to redefine the standards of the architectural glass industry. Corning and Goldray Glass are now collaborating to expand the design opportunities of this revolutionary product to the architectural decorative glass industry.
Corning® Gorilla® Glass: Limitless Design Possibilities
These days, we’re all attached to our smartphones – more than 4 billion of us to be exact. And if you, like most of the population, use a smartphone, then chances are you already know about Corning Gorilla Glass without even recognizing it. Corning Gorilla Glass is the cover glass used on many smartphones and it has revolutionized the phone manufacturing industry.
Why Corning Gorilla Glass?
In an effort to unlock all of the performance capabilities of Corning Gorilla Glass, the Goldray team immediately initiated a research and development phase and discovered numerous advantages of Corning Gorilla Glass over traditional methods.
Corning Gorilla Glass is ultra-thin and lightweight, weighing 25 percent of ordinary architectural glass, making it an excellent option for weight-sensitive applications. Weight is an important consideration in construction – especially with elevator cabs – but when paired with Goldray’s Nova Wall System, you’re left with a rigid, fire-resistant surface that adds virtually zero weight to the finished product.
Any concern that the glass is not as durable due to its lightweight nature can be eliminated as it has a greater impact resistance and long-lasting durability. Corning Gorilla Glass is chemically strengthened to be tough – resulting in reduced lifecycle costs on projects. With a scratch resistant surface, Corning Gorilla Glass is ideal for high traffic areas such as lobbies, hallways, elevators and in either wall cladding or partitions.
The superior optical clarity of the glass creates a powerful canvas that allows images and colors to appear much sharper and more expressive than with traditional glass. Compatible with many decorative applications, designers can bring their vision to life with the use of digital printing, laminating and back painting and turn something like an ordinary elevator cab into an extraordinary piece of art that leaves a lasting impression.
