ROBAX® - HEAT RESISTANT CERAMIC

Robax® is a highly transparent glass-ceramic having virtually zero thermal expansion and sufficient mechanical resistance required for all standard applications. It is produced as flat sheets using a rolling process. As a result of its extremely low thermal expansion, Robax® can be subjected to extreme temperature differences. Even when used in high temperature conditions, Robax® maintains excellent stability of form.  Further more, it can be processed mechanically using all of the normal methods in glass processing.

Robax® processes a high degree of resistance against thermal stresses and chemical surface attacks. Its diverse range of application include:  fireplace doors and windows, chemical process sight glass, high temperature vision windows, heat insulators, commercial oven/boilers, architectural and outdoor lighting, electronics and UV light wave blocking applications.
