Engineered Components for High Quality Glasses

Heraeus platinum products have been at the forefront of glass development and manufacture for 160 years. Otto Schott, the father of modern glassmaking, specified platinum crucibles from Heraeus for his experiments to develop optical glasses in the second half of the 19th century.
Throughout the 20th century Heraeus supported the development and manufacture of high grade glass products by providing new and improved platinum materials and fabricated components for every conceivable application in industry and research laboratories.
Heraeus is now a leading global supplier for any kind of platinum components for all aspects of glassmaking.
