For over six decades, SCHOTT, a world leader in this area, has been designing and co-developing hermetic packages with customers for the long term protection of sensitive electronic components.
Our hermetic packages and feedthroughs are based on glass-to metal and ceramic to-metal sealing technologies and have been used for many years in avionics and other demanding safety related applications, such as reliable packages for automotive airbag igniters.
SCHOTT packages are water-, humidity and gas-tight. The materials used are non-flammable and do not produce hazardous fumes.
The packages can withstand pressures of up to 4500 bar and are tested with temperature shocks of -65°C (-85°F) up to +150°C (+302°F) for 15 cycles.
