We know the the strong glass that coat phone screen is currently dominated by Gorilla Glass, unfortunately it is not vey long lasting. And there is now an even tougher glass which claimed 6x stronger than conventional glass (soda-lime glass), Dragontrail, created by one of Japan’s largest glass company, Asahi Glass.

This Dragontrail glass is thinner compared to Gorilla Glass. Despite its thinness this glass is able to withstand loads up to 60 kg and claimed to have an anti-scratch quality. And even more amazingly this glass does not cracked / broken and successfully passed the 60 kg load bending test with a hammer blow very impressively.
