Schott AG Key Developments

Schott AG Launched New MIROGARD Protect Ultra Laminated Glass for Picture Glazing

Schott AG has launched new MIROGARD Protect Ultra laminated glass for picture glazing. The unique features include its extremely light weight and the minimum thickness of the glass. This makes switching over to MIROGARD Protect Ultra from conventional picture glazing extremely quick and easy. Furthermore, it absorbs 99.9% of UV radiation and offers extremely good protection against splinters. Of course, it also comes with the high-quality anti-reflective coating that the MIROGARD family of products is known for. The new laminated glass MIROGRAD Protect Ultra combines excellent UV and shatter protection with a minimum thickness of only 2.95 mm. Switching over to MIROGARD Protect Ultra is easy too because it can be inserted into standard frame solutions with very little effort. Furthermore, the new laminated glass from SCHOTT is lightweight, weighing only 6.5 kg/m². With MIROGARD Protect Ultra, glazing of artworks is now even safer in two respects. On the one hand, the new laminated glass from SCHOTT offers 99.9% UV protection by absorbing UV rays of between 300 and 380 nm wavelengths. The protection against the destructive effects of solar radiation is therefore twice as high as with the standard version MIROGARD. On the other hand, MIROGARD Protect Ultra offers outstanding splinter protection, which makes transporting glazed artworks even safer. To ensure that viewers can enjoy an undisturbed view of art, MIROGARD Protect Ultra is manufactured with a great deal of technical effort. By coating it using the sol-gel process, in other words by applying several layers of titanium dioxide and silicon dioxide, this high-tech picture glass becomes virtually invisible afterwards. This, in turn, results in brilliant color rendering without any annoying reflections. The general color rendering index of the new laminated glass from SCHOTT is Ra= 100 and the reflectance is less than 1%.

Schott AG Unveils New Customized Interference Filters

Schott AG has announced the development and manufacturing of customized interference filters for use in space exploration, medical diagnostics and industrial applications. Schott can design sophisticated filters with extremely low tolerances that allow passage and blocking of differing wavelengths to meet any customer requirements, including new applications. The filters can be used in the field of astronomy, such as in the T80/JAST telescope, which was recently put into operation in Spain. They are also used in everything from coatings for high-performance laser applications to medical diagnostics technology, such as sophisticated fluorescence filters and Raman filters. The company recently manufactured the first lot of 70 customer-specific interference filters for the Observatorio Astrofisico de Javalambre in Spain, which will be used to assist in space observation. These extremely narrow bandpass filters enable astronomers to analyze narrow spectral regions of starlight, while accurately blocking out unwanted wavelengths. Furthermore, the filters are conceived for low wavefront errors, and therefore deliver extremely high image quality. In addition, the transmission spectrum is very homogeneous across the entire surface, which is approximately 106 mm by 106 mm. Schott is capable of developing and manufacturing sophisticated high-performance interference filters due to its more than 85 years of production experience. Schott is also capable of providing customized solutions that can meet even the most unusual requirements.

Schott Launches New Hard and Clear Coating Solutions

Schott AG has announced the launch of the new Hard & Clear coating solutions. The new Hard & Clear coating solutions increase scratch resistance by more than 95% and reduce glare by 85%. Manufacturers can apply this new coating to any cover glass to give mobile devices a virtually scratch-free glass screen that users can see clearly even in direct sunlight. SCHOTT's two breakthrough hard coating solutions include "ultra hard" and "durable anti-reflection" options. Type I, the ultra hard coating, reduces scratches by more than 95% over traditional alumino-silicate cover glass, achieving performance close to that of sapphire. This coating also cuts reflections by 75%. Type II, the durable anti-reflection coating, reduces reflection by 85% and scratches by 90% over alumino-silicate cover glass. The coating's residual air/glass reflection of only 0.6% means it's the best anti-reflective coating available for smartphone usage, making it possible to read a message outside in direct sunlight. First, the coatings underwent the standard industry steel wool abrasion test. A weight load of 1 kilogram was applied to a 10 millimeter by 10 millimeter piece of steel wool type #0000, rubbing the steel wool at a speed of 40 cycles per minute. The coating stayed intact for 10,000 abrasions cyclesthree times more than the standard test requirement. In addition, the coatings underwent a fierce new sandpaper test with very hard corundum sandpaper at a force of 2 kilograms and 50 oscillations. This is a trial specifically designed by SCHOTT to mimic the long and deep scratches that come from keys, coins, and sandthe enemy of all mobile devices kept in handbags and pockets. This test also measures the scratch level accurately with a hazemeter and benchmarks the results with other solutions. SCHOTT will offer this innovation for all glass substrates, whether alumino-silicate or soda lime glass, to all manufacturers. SCHOTT licenses its technology to coating specialists. The first licensing partner, the Chinese display coating specialist ZhengXing, is scheduled to begin mass production of Hard & Clear coated cover glass in July 2015.
