Ghosting and Corning® Gorilla® Glass for Markerboards

Advancements in technology are drastically changing the way we work, learn, and play. The emergence of new systems, and new materials, has allowed for even the most basic product to be rethought, and even revolutionized.    Think back to your days in school.

Class would begin, and a teacher would take out a marker and begin writing notes on the board – the whiteboard. Remember a few days later? Maybe even after those notes were erased? A few, faint remnants of that lecture were left behind. That’s what the industry calls “ghosting.”

Recently, Corning announced the emergence of its famed Gorilla Glass technology into the classroom and office with its new Corning® Gorilla® Glass for markerboards initiative.

“Traditional markerboards are heavy and easily stained,” said David Loeber, business director for Corning Large Cover Glass.

Gorilla Glass is stain resistant, allowing writers to use vibrant markers, which can cause staining on porcelain and melamine. The glass markerboards can be erased easily with a microfiber cloth.

Today, Corning is working with designers and manufacturers to apply the features and benefits of Gorilla Glass to markerboard applications, helping to eliminate the ghosting effect. To learn more about markerboards, please visit the markerboards application page.
