Lotus Glass reportedly has a high annealing point

Corning’s tough-but-light Gorilla Glass has become a common feature on smartphone displays, along with those of other consumer electronics such as TVs and computers.

The material is designed specifically for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays and next generation LCD screens.
