Unbreakable Glass

Researchers in Japan have created an unbreakable new glass that is reportedly as strong as steel. This breakthrough could see the new material revolutionise the use of glass in buildings, cars and technology, and it should be available within five years.

The glass, whose composition is 54Al2O5-46Ta2O5, underwent strength, hardness and elasticity tests including Young’s modulus and Vickers methods. The tests revealed that the glass was twice as strong as typical glass and evidently rivalled that of steel and iron.
