Expertise in glass and glass ceramics for research and industry

Creative solutions for individual requirements in glass and glass ceramics

 

Since the founding of the institute in 1926, the development, manufacture and characterization of special glasses and glass ceramics has been one of the core competencies of Fraunhofer ISC in Würzburg.

We develop special glasses and glass ceramics for individual requirements - no matter if temperature stable, electrically conductive or gas-tight. For specified applications, we manufacture glass in the form of rods, tubes, semi-finished products, powders and fibers and advise on glass composition, glass coating and glass analysis. Further topics are other silicate mineral materials such as plasters, paints, mortars and concrete.

From the creation of a new glass system to the design and construction of a special glass melting plant - the Glass and Mineral Materials Division covers the entire process with its focus on material and process development, characterization and testing technology (certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015).
