SCHOTT SUPREMAX® 33 Now Widely and Readily Available in North America.

January 24, 2012 (San Francisco, CA at Photonics West) – SCHOTT North America, Inc. announced today at the SPIE Photonics West show that SUPREMAX® 33 borosilicate glass is now available throughout a wide network of distributors in North America from coast to coast. SUPREMAX® 33 replaces ultra-thick Corning PYREX®, which is no longer available on the market.

SUPREMAX® 33 shares identical properties of SCHOTT’s borosilicate glass BOROFLOAT® 33: it combines low thermal expansion and high thermal resistance, excellent light transmission and impressive chemical durability. The critical difference is in the production processes. SUPREMAX® 33 is a rolled borosilicate, while BOROFLOAT® 33 is a floated glass. SUPREMAX® 33 is available in a wide range of thicknesses up to the ultra-thick glass of 66.7 mm. With a low density that makes it 12 percent lighter than soda lime glass, SUPREMAX® is a highly versatile material suitable for an unlimited array of applications.

“SCHOTT is the only manufacturer worldwide who has developed a manufacturing process to create low thermal expansion borosilicate glass in unique sizes,” said Karen Elder, Marketing Manager at SCHOTT North America. “SCHOTT now offers a high quality and durable borosilicate glass solution that meets an even wider range of industry needs.”

PYREX® is a registered trademark of Corning, Inc.
BOROFLOAT® 33 and SUPREMAX® 33 are registered trademarks of SCHOTT AG
