Schott AG Key Developments

Schott AG Launches New Mirogard Daro Picture Framing Glass

Schott AG has launched new Mirogard Daro picture framing glass. It is Durable Anti-Reflective coating with Oleophobic (DARO) properties, annoying fingerprints and smudges can now be removed from the glass very easily using a damp, soft cloth. The DARO version also features the extremely low residual reflection of less than 1% that the MIROGARD product family typically offers. The new MIROGRAD DARO glass offers several advantages due to its high-tech coating: this picture framing glass is resistant to fingerprints and water and easy to clean with a soft, damp cloth. The anti-reflective coating has visual reflectance of less than 1% and a very high color rendering index of Ra = 100 that allows the colors in an artwork to be rendered very naturally. SCHOTT initially developed the DARO coating for using CONTURAN DARO glass in larger size displays in public spaces that are subjected to regular and frequent operation by their users. The product version SCHOTT MIROGARD Protect Ultra that has been on the market since June 2015 is also available with the DARO coating and now even offers excellent protection against dirt and fingerprints besides splinter protection, UV protection and its light weight. Long-term durability is thus also achieved with chemical and mechanical stress.

Schott AG Expands Production Capacity for Pharmaceutical Glass

Schott AG has expanded its production capacity for pharmaceutical glass. The company plans to put a new melting tank for its Type I glass named FIOLAX clear into operation at its site in Mitterteich, Germany. From 2015 to 2016, Schott will be investing a sum in the mid-double-digit millions in the expansion. This move will increase the company's production capacity for glass tubing to more than 140,000 tons. FIOLAX glass tubing is used to manufacture high-quality vials, syringes, ampoules and cartridges. The pharmaceutical industry then fills these with injectable drugs. The needs of the pharmaceutical companies for such high-quality packaging are rising steadily because of an ever-increasing regulatory pressure and more stringent standards for patient safety. FIOLAX is designed to meet these exact requirements.

Schott AG Appoints New Members of the Board of Management

The Supervisory Board of SCHOTT AG has decided to appoint Hermann Ditz, Head of the Electronic Packaging Business Unit, and Dr. Heinz Kaiser, Head of the Home Tech Business Unit, to the Board of Management of SCHOTT AG with effect from January 1, 2016. Dr. Hans-Joachim Konz, who has been a member of the Board of Management of SCHOTT AG since 2008, will be leaving the company at the end of calendar year 2015.
