Chemical properties

Highly resistant surface against chemical attacks
 
Only special glasses used in lab­o­ra­to­ries can compete with the re­sis­tance to acids and bases of
NEX­TREMA® glass-ce­ram­ics. The highly corrosion resistant surface ensures a reliable material performance and stable process environments even under corrosive conditions.
 

Key properties
     Benefits
   
Chemically resistant surface comparable to laboratory glassware
  • No material degradation and thus stable performance in corrosive environments
  • Reliable protection against gases, acids and bases in aggressive process environments
Non-porous, smooth surface
  • No outgassing in vacuum environments
  • No generation or adhesion of particles

Principal constituents (reference: DIN EN 1748-2-1)
The principal constituents of all the ceramic materials are as follows:

Component
 

Symbol  

Percentage per mass  
Silicon dioxide SiO2 50 % – 80 %
Aluminium oxide Al2O3 15 % – 27 %
Lithium oxide Li2O 0 % – 5 %
Zinc oxide ZnO 0 % – 5 %
Titanium oxide TiO2 0 % – 5 %
Zirconium oxide ZrO2 0 % – 5 %
Magnesium oxide MgO 0 % – 8 %
Calcium oxide CaO 0 % – 8 %
Barium oxide BaO 0 % – 8 %
Sodium oxide Na2O 0 % – 2 %
Potassium oxide K2O 0 % – 2 %
Other (trace content on request)   0 % – 5 %
The materials do not contain any harmful substances according to the European
directive 2002/95/EC “Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronically
Equipment” and fulfill the terms of RoHS without any concerns.  

 
 
Federal Republic of Germany waste disposal regulations differentiate five classes
of waste, Z0 (non-restricted disposal), Z3 (household waste), and up to Z5 (highly toxic waste). All NEXTREMA® materials are classified as non-restricted disposal. 
Local government regulations may differ. Please contact the local authority if
needed. NEXTREMA® must not be disposed of in recycling boxes for standard glass (e.g. glass bottles).

 
End of life usage
The chemical resistance of NEXTREMA® is more extensive than that of most other
comparable materials.
