Strong through toughening
While the ultra-thin AS glass impresses with a minimal bending radius, the floated variant convinces with a maximum survival of impact. Additionally, many properties are making this glass type a reliable and high-quality component in sophisticated electronic applications.
Alkaline-free glass variants
Alkaline-free aluminoborosilicate glass offers a fire-polished surface with a roughness value below 1 nm. The coefficient of thermal expansion of this glass can match silicon or other semiconductors, making it ideal for electronic applications. With a high transformation temperature, it’s even possible to use it for high-temperature applications up to 600 °C.
Alkaline earth AS glass variants
Alkaline earth aluminosilicate glass is also free of alkali oxides, but mixed with about 15 % of alkaline earths. It features very high transformation temperature and softening points, and is the first choice for halogen lamp glass bulbs, high-temperature thermometers, combustion tubes, and more.
