EN: Bild Bühne

The development, manufacture and characterization of new types of specialty glass and glass ceramics are the ISC’s core competencies. On request, we can provide support throughout the entire process chain, from the development of a new glass system for a specific application to the design and construction of the appropriate glass smelting plant. Depending on your application needs, we can also manufacture and supply specialty glasses in the form of rods, tubes, semi-finished products, powders and fibers, in batch sizes ranging from 100 g to 100 kg. Our consultants are always available to help with any questions you might have concerning glass and glass contact materials. We also provide advice and support to customers working on development projects involving other silicate-based mineral products such as plaster, paints, mortar, and concrete.

Our list of customers includes companies in the fields of dental medicine, electronics, optics, ceramics, building construction, and glass manufacture. Please contact us for more information.
