Hot Glass Handling 
During the production process of glass, wherever hot glass is handled, it comes into contact with components made of other materials. The operational reliability and the properties of these materials are decisive for an efficient and trouble-free production as well as for an excellent finish on the glass products.

This is why we manufacture such components out of carbon. Like no other material, carbon is suited for the applications in the glass industry, due to its unique properties.

- Carbon prevents surface checking in the glass because of its significantly lower thermal conductivity, compared to that of metals.

- Carbon does not leave any discoloration on the glass parts, due to its excellent chemical resistance.

- Carbon allows for long lifetimes of the handling components as a result of its outstanding resistance to high temperatures and oxidation.

For parts exposed to extremely high mechanical loads, Schunk Materials offers carbon fiber-reinforced materials.
