Sapphire glass is resistant, hard, chemically stable and it is an excellent material for sight glasses in an unfavorable environment.

Sapphire glass may be cleaned repeatedly without any damage! It is resistant to temperature up to 2000 degrees C and is used in situations where there are considerable differences of pressures. Due to high costs of production and high hardness at grinding, small size elements are used.

Application:

  1. Optical industry
    (UV and infrared, telemetry, gas and air analyzers)
  2. Measuring devices, meters of electricity, water, flow
    (wear resistance)
  3. Spray nozzles, cleaning in the water jets, rods
