SCHOTT won the Crystal Cabin Award in the category “Materials & Components” for its laminated glass composite made from Xensation® Cover glass to be used in interior sidewall window panes in passenger aircraft. SCHOTT is the first company to offer a product that meets all requirements for fire protection and mechanical reliability, and at the same time is lighter than traditional plastics-based sidewall window panes in aircraft interiors. The product was developed in cooperation with the company Diehl Aircabin.
SCHOTT has marketed its floated borosilicate glass from Jena successfully for 20 years. SCHOTT delivers its customers with BOROFLOAT® specialty glass in standard formats. It also forms the basis for a wide range of products which the company processes at its site: from interior oven doors to the internationally known PYRAN® S fire-resistant glass, RESISTAN® bullet-proof glass, and NEXTERION® substrates for use in the biosciences.
