The international technology group SCHOTT that has over 125 years of experience in manufacturing special-purpose optical glasses has now announced that the most popular high-quality glass types of up to quality level H4 will be available from stock and can be ordered in the form of cut blanks starting soon.
Furthermore, the company will be offering high-quality glasses for use in large high precision optics up to the homogeneity level H5.
In order to comply with the REACH Regulation set forth by the European Union, the SCHOTT Advanced Optics Business Unit has recently completed a thorough review of the legislation’s requirements to determine if our lines of glass need to be registered. Through diligent investigations and focused teamwork, we determined that the vast majority of our glass products do not require registration.
However, for those few glasses that do need registration, the appropriate registration dossier was successfully submitted to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) prior to the May 31, 2013 due date.

New exhibit represents a valuable addition to the collection on glass technology in Munich
The international technology group SCHOTT donated a presenter that consists of rolled ultra-thin glass to the Deutsches Museum in Munich.
