Easy Care glass solutions

At SCHOTT, less is more, which is why we are constantly looking for ways to reduce the effort needed for the daily care of glass by providing panels with intelligent surfaces.

Cleaning made simple

The product experience of an appliance is not just limited to its operational performance. Glass care and cleaning are both extremely important topics, and an additional area of our innovation efforts. Here glass is unbeatable since, even in its original form, it is easy to clean. To further reduce the effort required for care and cleaning, we are researching new solutions for home appliances and user interfaces.
