A special aspect is that this year’s show theme relates closely to the SCHOTT vision: “We make SCHOTT part of every person’s life.” This theme was embodied in a world of experience that was on display in a 100 square meter area in Hall 11 and at the Glass Technology Live show.
One new highlight is a wall system from SCHOTT that showcases high-end glass solutions for interior design that are qualitatively and aesthetically pleasing. The color effect glass Narima® was used to create the exterior walls of the show booth. Also on display is Conturax® Pro, a new generation of profiled glass tubes offered by SCHOTT; it is used for such applications as partitions, door and window frames, lighting solutions and shading systems. A special aspect of Conturax® Pro is that it can be implemented in a wide variety of forms: square, rectangular, and even combinations of round and rectangular.
The technology company is also presenting new products in the product area of technical glass and glass ceramics, e.g. its ultra-hard glass product XensationTM Cover that is currently being launched and is used in displays for smart phones and tablet PCs. Another new product is the glass ceramic Nextrema®, a high-tech material with exceptional product properties that include extreme temperature resistance of up to 950° Celsius with minimal thermal expansion. It is intended for engineers and designers in the transportation technology and consumer appliances industries, where other materials such as plastic, glass or metal are running into performance limits.
In addition, SCHOTT is presenting the thinnest glass in the world today at Glasstec. The company offers this thin glass which is as fine as a hair, flexible and can even be rolled up in various glass types (currently AF 32® eco and D 263® T eco). The product is further proof of the company’s unique abilities to fulfill wide ranges of requirements: from the largest glass blanks up to 8 meters in diameter to complex customized parts and the world’s thinnest glass.
SCHOTT is just as prominently represented at the special glass technology live (gtl) show with two exhibit pieces in the highly frequented lounge area: the first is an 8.4 meter long glass bar; the second is a “Glass Wall” both designed in Conturax® Pro tubes. The wall 12 meters long and 3.20 meters tall is a real attraction. Another wall system in the gtl area is designed in the form of a media kiosk. Another exhibit piece is a glass walkway that features Magira® LightPoints.
