CONTURAX® and CONTURAX® Pro  glass tubing and rods

CONTURAX®: Profile glass tubes and rods

SCHOTT's expertise as a manufacturer of glass tubes and rods goes far beyond the round shape - as demonstrated by the wide range of CONTURAX® profile glass tubes and rods.
Benefit from the advantages of DURAN® borosilicate glass, from which our CONTURAX® profiled glass tube is manufactured. The profile portfolio of diverse and aesthetic shapes opens up completely new possibilities for a wide variety of applications. The glass profiles are used for example in industry, architecture, lighting, furniture design, product design, art and design to name but a few. 

Here are some examples of our profile glass shapes:
• Oval
• Triangular rods
• Stars hexagonal or pentagonal
• Flowers with a different numbers of "petals"
• Lozenge-shaped
• Inner profiles: smooth outside tube, tube with a profile inside, different webs available

Even more possibilities arise with the further processing of the shapes, e.g. by halving the profile glass or shortening it to glass cylinders with inner or outer profiles.

There should be no limits to creativity here.

Should you not find a suitable glass shape with us, we are open to new developments. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
