Glass Tubing with High UV Transmission

SCHOTT sets the standard for glass tubing with high UV transmission, demonstrated by SCHOTT 8337B, 8405 and 8347 glasses. Robust and heat-resistant, they are especially suitable for sealing with tungsten or the alloy Kovar, which makes them a major asset in UV lighting and sensing applications.

Advantages across the board

Offering high UV transmittance and matched thermal expansion, SCHOTT 8337B, 8405 and 8347 glasses have a lot going for them. While SCHOTT 8337B is commonly used as housing in UV light sensors and flash lamps, SCHOTT 8405 is essential for UV disinfection lighting applications such as UV purifier robots.

Strong sealing properties

SCHOTT high UV-C transmitting glasses can achieve a strong direct seal with tungsten or Kovar to provide strong and stable housing with wires and metal components in specialist lighting and sensors. Since this seal is extremely tight, it ensures the unique atmospheres inside the glass envelope remain intact.
