Ceramic Glass

Ceramic glassCeramic borosilicate glass

The borosilicate glass is due to its chemical inertness and low coefficient of expansion particularly suitable for gas and oil stoves. It is resistant to sulphate that's released by the burning of gas and oil. This feature prevents stains on the glass. The temperature should not exceed 350°C.

Ceramic Vitroceram / Robax glass

The ceramic Vitroceram / Robax glass exceeds the standard of thermal resistance. The expansion factor is almost zero to 800°C, which offers resistance to almost all thermal shocks. This glass is used for stoves because 90% of the infrared radiation is converted. The continuous operating temperature is 740°C and can be heated up to 800°C, also this type of glass can be immersed in water at 0°C without breakage risk.

Ceramic glass - ceramic heater Quartz glass

Quartz glass resists a brief heating of 1500°C  and a continuous heating up to 1000°C. Here are the specifications in a row:

  • Standard thicknesses: 3 to 10mm
  • Composition: Chemical composition SIO2
  • Temperature:
          Limited resistance to 1500 ° C.
          Continuously withstand 1000 ° C.
  • Application:
          High temperature processes
          Electronic circuits and laboratory furnaces
  • Feature: Chemically resistant to acids
