CINCINNATI GASKET AND INDUSTRIAL GLASS AT PHOTONICS WEST 2017
We just got back from an exciting trip to the Photonics West Exhibition at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Besides the beauty and charm of the city, Photonics West was filled with variety of glass and glass related companies and applications.
On hand were our friends from Schott North America Inc., the manufacturer of the world’s highest quality borosilicate plate glass products: Schott Borofloat and Schott Supremax.
Borosilicate glass such as Schott Borofloat® & Schott Supremax® is typically specified for applications that require glass with unique chemical, thermal, mechanical and optical properties. When glass must be able to withstand higher temperatures, resist chemicals, and withstand a high degree of thermal shock, borosilicate glass is a dependable selection.
BOROSILICATE GLASS PROPERTIES
Borosilicate glass is developed through the addition of boron to the glass frit composition of silicate sand, soda, and ground lime. Its high thermal and chemical resistance, along with its excellent transparency and surface quality, make it ideal for high-tech special glass applications.
