BOROFLOAT® 33 - Borosilicate glass

The world´s first floated borosilicate glass – Made in Germany with IQ 

More than 20 years ago, SCHOTT set up the first mi­crofloat pro­duc­tion line for the man­u­fac­tur­ing of what would soon become one of the most in­flu­en­tial spe­cialty glass ma­te­ri­als. The result was BOROFLOAT® 33 – the world’s first floated borosil­i­cate glass. With high-qual­ity German en­gi­neer­ing at its core, BO­ROFLOAT® 33 quickly became an out­stand­ing example of what happens when advanced knowl­edge, in­no­v­a­tive tech­nol­ogy and pro­fes­sional cu­rios­ity are com­bined.  The long-stand­ing in­ter­na­tional success of BO­ROFLOAT® is what drives us to improve. We work closely with our cus­tomers to offer high-qual­ity so­lu­tions that help to unlock new markets and meet the most tech­no­log­i­cally de­mand­ing ma­te­r­ial re­quire­ments. With BOROFLOAT® the key to it all!
