Optical Glass Solutions at Labotec Industrial Technologies 

If you are an eyeglass manufacturer in the media industry, telecommunications or medicine industry, then you rely heavily on high-quality optical glass. Optical glass is a part of everyday life and can be found in literally thousands of products of virtually every configuration in the fields of medicine, communications, imaging and more, from eye glasses, contact lenses, microscopes, binoculars, photometers and cameras, to internet and touchscreen phones. Optical solutions are simply the backbone of our 21st century technological world.

Almost 125 years ago, Otto Schott began a transformation by scientifically researching and developing glass structures, and since this remarkable revolution, SCHOTT Advanced Optics has been leading the innovation in the areas of glass technology, offering the largest assortment of optical solutions of the highest-class to a number of manufacturing sites around the globe. These optical products reach a wide selection of optical and industrial applications that range from consumer products to optical usage, which are all at the cutting edge of the latest ground-breaking research.

A highly transparent, pure, chemically resistant glass that is free from imperfections, such as particles, bubbles and chemicals that would affect its conduction of light, optical glass is manufactured with precisely defined optical properties. Depending on the combination of these properties, optical glass is split into flint glass (with the opposite properties) and crown glass (low refraction and high dispersion).

With technology advancing, there is a good chance that your application requires an engineered product with special requirements, which can be found at Labotec Industrial Technologies in Johannesburg.
