B 270®

SCHOTT prides itself on fulfilling the demands of its customers, so B 270® is available in the form of two variants. B 270® i offers enhanced optical features, while B270® D is produced in smaller thicknesses (0.2-0.9 mm) having the same optical quality as B 270® i. This makes it ideal for applications that demand optimized geometrical properties.

B 270® i

Manufactured using SCHOTT’s up-draw process, this highly transparent glass offers excellent optical quality and cost-efficient processing. High transmittance and strong solarization stability make it suitable for the biotech industry and consumer and industrial optics fields.

CHARACTERISTICS

This crown glass variant is made from raw materials with a low iron oxide content, giving an ultra-white appearance. It also delivers consistently high transmittance across a wide light spectrum while maintaining a tightly controlled homogenous refractive index, strong solarization stability and robust chemical resistance. These characteristics make it the perfect choice for biotech applications such as lab-on-a-chip systems and substrate coatings, as well as filter systems for consumer and industrial optics, 3D polarizer glass, consumer glasses, and display covers.


YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • Wide range of thicknesses available in sheet glass form, from 0.9 mm to 10 mm, with customized formats and processing available on request.
  • High chemical stability and solar radiation resistance for demanding applications, as well as high transmittance in the visible wavelength range.
  • Enables highly cost-effective processing.
B 270® D
B 270® D

Manufactured using SCHOTTs renowned down-draw process, B 270® D combines the high optical quality of B 270® i with a range of optimized geometrical properties to meet the requirements of demanding applications.

CHARACTERISTICS

While this crown glass variant achieves the same high optical quality and the same impressive attributes as B 270® i, it benefits from an even higher quality of geometry and lower glass defects rate. These small differences can be vital when it comes to applications with precise requirements in specifications such as total thickness variation (TTV). The wider range of thicknesses available also addresses the needs of advanced applications that demand high geometrical quality.


YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • Available in thicknesses from 1.1 mm down to 0.3 mm.
  • Crown glass, delivering exceptional optical performance.
  • Perfectly suited for applications requiring optimized geometrical qualities and the lowest possible defects rate.
