Home Appliances

All electrical home appliances – ranging from small appliances, such as irons, coffee makers, rice cookers, bread makers and toasters, to larger ones such as refrigerators, dish washers, stoves and washing machines – have one thing in common: They all have thermal cutoffs.

These safety devices, made of metal, ceramics as well as organics and alloys, interrupt the electrical current flow when heated to a specific temperature in order to prevent damage caused by heat or even fire.

We are a worldwide leading manufacturer of reliable thermal protection devices - our NEC SCHOTT SEFUSE® product line, is recognized by many international safety standards.

Our hermetic compressor seals are used in applications such as refrigerators and air conditioning.
