Damage Resistant Glass-Ceramic
This material has better hardness and crack resistance than any commercially available glass
Rutgers University researchers have developed an Al2O3 rich damage resistant glasses and glass-ceramics, which exhibit Vickers hardness of >7 GPa and do not crack at loads as high as 2000 gf (19.6 N).
The resistance to fracture is...
