Optical Glass & Technical Specialty Glass

Product categories of our technical and optical glass

Technical glass material features a high grade of quality with a superior optical flatness and micro roughness compared to ordinary glass materials. These are the base materials for many products in industry, research and development. To be quick, our company continously keeps a large stock of these materials. All of them have different properties which make them suitable for a great variety applications. You will find this material group in the categories "Sheet- and Flat glass" and "Thin Glass.

Optical Glass has a very high purity and a very low amount of inclusions. Those kind of optical grade glasses are specified more precise in regards to their optical characteristics like the refractive index. They are used for products like high quality optical windows, substrates, prisms, lenses or lens systems and are generally chosen for demanding precision optics and high-end laser optical applications and whenever a particular optical property like a specific refractive index, purity, low amount of inclusions etc. is function critical for specific products. Our company grinds, polishes and shapes these materials, because they mostly only are available in blocks and not as sheet material. Typical optical glasses are BK7, quartz glass and fused-silica. You will find those and more materials in the category "Block-, Drawn- and Rolled optical Glass" and if not listed in this category on request.

Specialty glass always offers particular material properties. Such kind of materials are developed to fulfill the specialized requirements of an industrial application or of a specific range of products. The glasses for example can be alkali-free, thin or ultrathin, lightweight or they can for example offer a display grade uniformity. You will find these materials in all three categories below:
