Autoclavable SCHOTT Solidur® LEDs for Medical and Dental Devices

Sterilizable LEDs for extreme conditions
LEDs have become indispensable in high-tech applications, for instance in medical technology or dentistry. Here, very high requirements are placed on lighting products: size, light properties, temperature management, usability and sterilizability are of major importance.

Hermetic and autoclavable
Precisely for these applications, SCHOTT has developed fully hermetic Solidur® LED modules. Besides gas- and watertightness, thoroughly selected materials provide excellent temperature management properties, as well as a high lifetime. Thus, the LEDs can reliably withstand extremely harsh operating environments, e.g. typical sterilization conditions in autoclaves.

Customizable designs
Thanks to SCHOTT’s know how in the development of customized housings, caps and lenses,  Solidur®LEDs can be designed to meet your individual requirements. Furthermore, customers can select from three basic LED types:

- Solidur Mini LED: The world’s smallest autoclavable HB (high brightness) LED
- Solidur Ring LED: The first autoclavable ring-shaped HB LED
- Solidur TO LED: Autoclavable all-rounder that can be easily integrated into existing systems

SCHOTT Solidur® LEDs - Undefeated champions in robustness

Watch our video from the International Dental Show 2015 in Cologne, Germany, where we introduced two new platforms of our autoclavable Solidur LEDs:


The Solidur® Ring LED is the world’s first ring-shaped autoclavable LED. Its “ring design” enables shadow-free illumination of the area of interest.

The Solidur® TO LED is an autoclavable LED that is based on hermetic Transistor Outline (TO)-geometries. As a TO-specialist, SCHOTT can offer a broad variety of TO housings and lenses.
