The special treatment of the gorilla glasses works directly on the molecular level through a bath in boiling hot alkaline solution, a precisely planned exchange of ions starts, which not only protects the raw material better against mechanical pressure, but also significantly increases the surface tension of cracks and scratches counteracts. Even with deeper damage, the coating prevents further material chipping at the edges.rn.
Gorilla glasses are "inherently" specials translucent and distortion-free . The special type of glass ensures that these excellent optical properties are not impaired by dirt or damage. In addition, the filter glasses benefit from the one developed by Rollei Special coating whose quality is regularly and strictly monitored.
