Versatile solutions

NEXTREMA® already enabled many of our clients. Let’s have a look at some prototypic use cases.

By using NEXTREMA® many of our clients reduced their production costs significantly due to its long durability.

Heater cover

Due to its process inertness, its dedicated transmission and its near zero thermal expansion NEXTREMA® perfectly matches the requirements of an industrial infrared heater cover. No matter if you want to dry car paint, mold plastic containers, or dry food with IR heating – our glass-ceramic is the material of choice.

Carrier plates

When your products – for example displays or solar panels – run through a high temperature process, NEXTREMA® is an unrivaled material to use as a carrier plate: its near zero thermal expansion enables rapid heating and cooling while its high mechanical strengths guarantees that the carried objects keep their shape.

Inner lining and insulation

Two types of NEXTREMA® show a very low transmission in the IR range – leading to good insulation in high temperature processes and saving you energy costs. At the same time our glass-ceramic is process inert, withstand temperatures up to 950°C and is easy to clean.

Viewing window

One NEXTREMA® type perfectly suits an application as a viewing window. Not only because it’s transparent, but also due to its optional infrared reflective coating, that reflects radiation back into the chamber. Not to forget the material’s continuous heat resistance and its non-porous surface which makes it easy to clean.
