ARC antireflection coating now also available with 0,7 mm thickness
Due to the increasing demand for thin double-side antireflection coated glass, we added a new standard thickness to our ARC delivery program. From now on, our double-side ARC-antireflection coating is also available with a glass thickness of 0,7 mm (+/-0,05) at short notice.

Oleophobic anti-reflection coatings
Our new oleophobic anti-fingerprint anti-reflection coatings offer both an excellent anti-reflection effect and oil-repellent properties on the operator side. Fingerprints, liquids, and dirt hardly stick, and cleaning is much easier. The oleophobic coating is highly durable and resists many hundreds of thousands of friction cycles, according to MIL-C-675C. The ARC-O is available immediately and also in express service.

Glass wafers made of specialty glass materials now also available within 48h–Express Service
The manufacturing and delivery of glass wafers made of various specialty glass materials are now possible based on a CNC-precision-glass-cut edge configuration within our 48h-Express Optics Service. For most materials, you are free to define the diameter of the wafers up to 300 mm or 12", and you can determine whether the wafers should be just round or whether they should have a SEMI-standard flat. Available are several different alkali-free glass materials and borosilicate glass, BK7, UV-grade quartz glass, and several more economically priced glass options. More...

New Thin Glass Processing Capabilities within our 48h-Express Service
We have developed a new method to process thin glass at 50 µm thickness. This process allows for more efficient processing of such extremely thin and fragile glass parts. Up to now, we limited the possible dimensions of elements at only 50 microns glass thickness to fixed sizes because the production yield of custom dimensions was minimal. By a newly developed CNC machine, we can now make nearly any square or rectangle custom dimension at 50µm glass thickness and high precision even within our 48h-Service.

NEW! Alkali-free thin glass AF 32® eco: A thin-glass matching to the CTE of silicon!
AF 32® eco is alkali-free in synthesis and has a CTE of 3,2 × 10-6, close to the one of silicon. The glass is, therefore, suitable for semiconductor applications. It is available at 0,1 mm - 0,5 mm thickness and offers a high surface quality, flatness, and optical transmission, and low micro-roughness. Read more...
