Pickup truck Ford F-150 received a new windshield
The American company Corning Incorporated, which specializes in the manufacture of glass for smartphones and other equipment, has created a new sixth-generation Gorilla Glass windshield for the Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The technology of manufacturing a new generation of glass is unique. Glass is manufactured at temperatures from 1000 C and chemical hardening. Therefore, the new glass from Gorilla Glass is less prone to damage. Indeed, in the USA, almost all pickups are used as commercial vehicles and are used during off-road “work”. And this mainly affects the windshield, which is always exposed to scratches, and sometimes even cracks or chips. Therefore, the new Gorilla Glass pickup glass increases the operating time of the frontal stack and reduces the cost of car owners, since the new generation glass is not susceptible to damage unlike ordinary glass.
New generation glass consists of three different layers:
- tempered glass (inner part),
- soundproof glass (middle layer),
- Gorilla Glass (outer part).
Although the novelty has already appeared massively in sales, however, the price of such an acquisition is much more expensive in contrast to ordinary glass in a car. The amount fluctuates around 900 US dollars.
