Schott AG, founded in Jena in 1884, is a German developer and manufacturer of high-quality industrial specialty glass products. Its main markets are household appliances, pharmaceutical industries, solar energy, electronics, optics, and automotive. According to the 2013 Annual Report, Schott AG employs 15,400 people in 35 countries. Sole shareholder of SCHOTT AG is the foundation Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung, Germany.Schott AG manufactures the optical glass components of, for example, Zeiss and Schneider Kreuznach lenses. They also publish the Schott Glass Catalog, a standard reference for the properties of the many optical glasses produced by them and other companies. In 2012, Schott introduced Xensation, a range of break- and scratch-resistant aluminosilicate cover glasses for touch-sensitive electronic devices such as smartphones and tablet computers, said to have 20% higher bending strength than "competitor glass types" .According to the 2014/15 Annual Report sales were 1.87 billion EUR and EBIT amounted to 135 million EUR.

A feed-through, for example a battery feed-through for a lithium-ion battery or a lithium ion accumulator, has at least one base body which has at least one opening through which at least one conductor, for example a pin-shaped conductor, embedded in a glass material is guided. The base body contains a low melting material, for example a light metal, such as aluminum, magnesium, AlSiC, an aluminum alloy, a magnesium alloy, titanium, titanium alloy or steel, in particular special steel, stainless steel or tool steel. The glass material consists of the following in mole percent: 35-50% P_(2)O_(5); 0-14% Al_(2)O_(3); 2-10% B_(2)O_(3); 0-30% Na_(2)O; 0-20% M_(2)O, with M being K, Cs or Rb; 0-35% Li_(2)O; 0-20% BaO; and 0-10% Bi_(2)O_(3), the glass material being free of lead except for contaminants.


A long-term bendable glass material includes a glass material having a bending radius in a range of 1 mm to 10^(7 )mm. The glass material is structured such that a number of breaks developing over a course of time after a storage period of at least one day displays a remaining probability of breaking of less than 0.1 for a storage time period of a maximum of half a year.


A substrate having a scratch resistance enhancing coating with improved cleanability and methods for producing such a coating are provided. The coating includes at least one high refractive index transparent hard material layer and includes aluminum nitride. The coating exhibits a contact angle for water of greater than 75.

A molding tool, a method, and an apparatus for hot forming of glass are provided that provide glass products used for pharmaceutical packaging. The molding tool includes a forming mandrel for reshaping at least a portion of a heated region of a glass precursor. The mandrel has a temperature-stable core material and an alloying element. The core material is made of precious metals, in particular of platinum group elements, and the further alloying element is made of one of tungsten, zirconium, rhodium, molybdenum, and rhenium.


A panel like, double-sided coated substrate and a method for production are provided. The panel like substrate includes at least two layers applied by heating, the first layer being applied on a first side of the substrate and having at least a glass component and structure-forming particles, the particles producing elevations on the first layer, and the softening temperature or the melting temperature of the particles being greater than the softening temperature of the glass component, and the second layer being applied on a second side of the substrate.


The present invention relates to optical glasses, in particular special short flint glasses (KZFS) and optical elements and components, which comprise these glasses, and use thereof and a method for producing such optical glasses. The optical glasses of the present invention are characterized by a pronounced short flint character and additionally by an excellent transmission and chemical resistance and workability. At that, the glasses of the invention can stand out due to lower costs of production caused by lower costs of raw materials and lower processing costs, due to their crystallization properties that can be handled also in smaller melting aggregates, and due to good environmental compatibility.

A feed-through, in particular a feed-through which passes through part of a housing, in particular a battery housing, for example made of metal, in particular light metal, for example aluminum, an aluminum alloy, AlSiC, magnesium, an magnesium alloy, titanium, a titanium alloy, steel, stainless steel or high-grade steel. The housing part has at least one opening through which at least one conductor, in particular an essentially pin-shaped conductor, embedded in a glass or glass ceramic material, is guided. The base body is, for example, an essentially annular-shaped base body and is hermetically sealed with the housing part such that the helium leakage rate is smaller than 1*10^(8 )mbar l/sec.


A catalytically active material is provided. The material includes a mixed oxide having a first metal selected from group 4 of the periodic table of elements and/or a second metal, and at least one further metal selected from group 11 of the periodic table of elements, wherein the macroscopic composition of the material given by the chemical formula corresponds to the composition of the material at a molecular level. A coating made of such a material is also provide, as is an article having such a coating, and a method for producing such a material.


The invention relates to a planar substrate coated on both sides, as well as to a method for producing same. The planar substrate comprises at least two layers that are applied by means of heating, the first layer being applied to a first side of the substrate and comprising at least one glass component and structure-forming particles, said particles causing elevations on the first layer and the softening temperature or melting temperature of these particles being higher than the softening temperature of said glass component, and the second layer being applied to a second side of said substrate.

A thermally tempered glass element is provided made of glass with two opposite faces that are under compressive stress of at least 40 MPa. The glass has a working point at which the glass has a viscosity of 10^(4 )dPas of at most 1350 C.
