FLEXINITY®

Thanks to microscale structuring and a surface that supports flawless joining, FLEXINITY® offers an impressive range of technical standards. A key component for miniaturized, high-performing systems, its customization potential makes any shape possible, providing a variety of opportunities for new technology.

Powerful, accurate and highly customizable

Ultra-fine structure

FLEXINTY® is available in a wide thickness range of 0.1 - 3.3 mm. While its structuring width can go down to 25 μm radius, its lateral size can be structured up to 600 mm, with a position tolerance down to ± 3 µm depending on specific application requirements.

Outstanding reliability

Thanks to its specific wall conditions, FLEXINTY® offers ultra-high mechanical strength in combination with adjusted thermal expansion for high reliability and yield.

Superb surface quality

The firm glass-silicon bonded stack of FLEXINITY® structured wafers is supported by the high quality of its surface. The exceptional fire-polished finish results in high durability, no matter which glass type is used in whatever application.

Create it your way

SCHOTT offers FLEXINITY® in a range of glass types. D 263® can be delivered as structured sheet, panel, or wafer, and offers strong transmittance in the VIS to NIR range combined with a high CTE, while AF 32® eco provides high thermal stability and a low dielectric loss factor.
