Hot Topic: Optical glasses almost bubble-free, even in the standard grade

SCHOTT Advanced Optics reworks their bubble grades for optical glasses and is proud to announce that our new simplified bubble and inclusion tolerance definition demonstrates that our optical glasses exhibit almost bubble-free content, even in the standard grade. This is possible due to a continuous improvement process within our production capabilities.

Our new bubble classes comprise only 3 grades:

Quality of Bubbles Standard VB EVB
Max. cross section mm2 per 100 ccm 0.03 0.02 0.006
Max. quantity per 100 ccm 10 4 2
