Hi Mi Fans!

Gorilla Glass is a brand of specialized toughened glassdeveloped and manufactured by Corning, now in its sixth generation, designed to be thin, light and damage-resistant. Gorilla Glass is unique to Corning

STRENGTH / RESISTANCE :
                  
The glass gains its surface strength, ability to contain flaws, and crack-resistance by being immersed in a proprietary, hot potassium salt ion-exchange bath The alkali-aluminosilicate sheet glass is used primarily as cover glass for portable electronic devices,including mobile phones, portable media players, portable computer displays, and television screens. It is manufactured in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, US; Asan, Korea; and Taiwan.

Glass Made Of :

         

Corning experimented with chemically strengthened glass, The glass under go by severe  ion exchange. The material is immersed in a molten alkaline potassium salt at a temperature of approximately 400 °C ( 750 °F ), wherein smaller sodium ions in the glass are replaced by larger potassium ions from the salt bath. The larger ions occupy more volume and thereby create a surface layer of high residual compressive stress, giving the glass surface increased strength, ability to contain flaws, and overall Crack-Resistance,  making it resistant to damage from everyday use.
Versions Out :
There are 5 versions previously, recently new Version "Gorilla Glass 6 " can see in upcoming devices

By 2010, the glass had been used in approximately 20% of mobile handsets worldwide. The second generation, called "Gorilla Glass 2", was introduced in 2012. On October 24, 2012, Corning announced that over one billion mobile devices used Gorilla Glass. Gorilla Glass 2 is 20% thinner than the original Gorilla Glass. the Nexus 4 and the Galaxy S3 came equipped with Gorilla Glass

      

Gorilla Glass 3 was introduced at CES 2013. According to Corning, the material is up to three times more scratch-resistant than the previous version, with enhanced ability to resist deep scratches that typically weaken glass.The promotional material for Gorilla Glass 3 claims that it is 40% more scratch-resistant, in addition to being more flexible. When Gorilla Glass 3 was announced Corning indicated that areas for future improvements included reducing reflectivity and susceptibility to fingerprint smudges, and changing the surface treatments and the way it is finished.used in Mi 3 device
         

Antimicrobial Gorilla Glass with ionic silver, which is antibacterial, incorporated into its surface was demonstrated in early 2014

Gorilla Glass 4, with better damage resistance and capability to be made thinner with the same performance as its predecessor, was announced at the end of 2014.it came on models like the Galaxy S4, the Moto G, and the Moto X etc..
        

Gorilla Glass 5 was first used on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in 2016.Now using Mi 8 explore also
         
Gorilla Glass SR was first used on the Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch in 2016.
Now Gorilla Glass has also addressed the automobile market. Ford Motor Company announced it will be using the material for the front and rear windshields on its Ford GT sports car  Gorilla Glass 6           

Durability :                 An average, people drop their phones seven times a year, with more than 50 percent of the drops occurring at 1 meter or below. To improve cover glass performance, Corning scientists developed and engineered an entirely new material to address the challenge of multiple drops. On average, in lab tests, Gorilla Glass 6 survived 15 drops from 1 meter on to rough surfaces, and is up to two times better than Gorilla Glass 5. Gorilla Glass 6 is an entirely new glass composition that can be chemically strengthened to give it significantly higher levels of compression than is possible with Gorilla Glass 5. This enables Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damageGorilla Glass 6 is claimed to be a better fit for handsets with displays featuring an 18:9 or 19:9 display aspect ratio than the company’s previous-gen Gorilla Glass 5Gorilla Glass 6, Corning has announced the Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX as tough solutions for wearables. The new line of glass protection is touted to improve front surface reflection by 75 percent compared to standard glass. The company also claims that the new offerings increase the display contrast ratio by 50 percent with the same brightness level. While the Gorilla Glass DX offers the same scratch resistance of regular Gorilla Glass panel, the Gorilla Glass DX  is claimed to provide even superior scratch resistance "approaching that of alternative luxury cover materials
Conclusion :                 It can survive til a limit of drops & its can get scratches by sand particles so need to be bit careful while using
