Whether tablet display, camera lens, or vaccine ampoule: special glasses must meet complex requirements. Precious metals such as platinum ensure that innovative types of glass retain their characteristic properties during production.
High-quality glass is omnipresent in our everyday lives. TV screens must be color-neutral and thin, touch screens scratch-resistant and shatterproof. For optical glass, high transparency and homogeneity are crucial, and medical glass guarantees the safe use of medical agents. While components made of ceramic materials are sufficient for producing and processing utility glasses, the production of special glasses requires specific materials: precious metal alloys, for example, made of platinum and rhodium.
