Welcome to SCHOTT

SCHOTT is a multinational, technology based group developing and manufacturing special glass, specialty materials, components and systems for more than 125 years to improve how people live and work.

Getting Greener

With environmentally friendly products and technologies SCHOTT is strengthening it ecological commitment. Eco-glasses are being offered e.g. in the Home Tech and the Optics division, but also in the Electronics & Biotech segment. A lot more green products are under development or in the product pipeline.


Higher efficiency for pharmaceutical companies

adaptiQ™ is the first ready-to-use system for pharmaceutical packaging that allows for pharmaceutical vials to be freeze-dried, weighed or closed inside the nest. SCHOTT developed adaptiQ™ in close cooperation with filling line manufacturers to ensure that pharmaceutical companies can use this system at their current facilities, make more flexible use of production lines and lower their total operating costs.

SCHOTT US Ceran pan drop test

How your glass-ceramic cooktop is tested

Part two of our “Tough as Glass” series. Cooktops see a lot of action. These glass surfaces must survive extreme temperature fluxes, heavy pots and pans, and daily wear for decades. For those reasons, the test methods used to measure the strength of glass-ceramic closely resemble everyday situations. Glass-ceramic behaves differently depending on the shape and contact area of the impact item. Therefore cooktops are tested with a compact ball impactor and a flat pan impactor.
We’ve spent years in the lab running test after test to ensure the safest and most durable glass-ceramic cooktops on the market. But don’t take our word for it — see for yourself how world-class glass-ceramic is tested.

How IR cameras can change the way you see the world

Making the invisible visible has long been a specialty of the US military. Infrared systems that display thermal images improve soldiers’ awareness in adverse conditions by showing heat signatures of vehicles and people that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Over the years IR technology has achieved step-change improvements in defense applications. Now IR technology is spreading to a number of new applications.
