Ford focus on innovation with Gorilla Glass

Could you believe the ability to assemble on your car a windshield made of the same material of the display of your smartphone?

Well from 2017 Ford will use a multilayer technology implemented specifically for the automotive sector based on Cornig Gorilla Glass, already used on electronic devices with touch screen.

Ford GT will be the first supercar equipped with this system on the windshield and the rear window. The tests show a reduction in weight of about 5Kg and an optimization of the production process since the new hybrid material “reduces the contamination of the raw material, provides for a special treatment of the edges and makes use of a special chemical strengthening“.

The car was tested under extreme conditions that were positive on impact, overturning and aerodynamics, it improved from dropping the center of gravity for the adoption of the new windshield.

The next goal of Ford would be to transfer these innovative materials on production models, will be the pioneer and leading the new era of “lightweight” in the car market?

Providing less weight and better sealing performance motorists portfolio and safety will thank.
