Sapphire and more …
Thanks to its exceptional physical properties, synthetic sapphire has established itself as a point material.
Sapphire is extremely hard (second only to diamond) and cannot be scratched by most materials.
Coupled with its outstanding resistance properties (chemical, electrical, mechanical), synthetic sapphire is favoured by the watchmaking industry and the point sectors.
Swiss watchmakers have long used synthetic sapphire for their crystals. Indeed, its many qualities and natural beauty make it possible to play with shapes. At STETTLER SAPPHIRE, from classic designs to complex glasses, everything is possible. There are few limits to creativity.
- Measurement and laser industries: Optical properties, combined with high temperature resistance make sapphire indispensable for laser technology. With scratch resistance, it is used for high quality video applications, measurement and mobile devices.
- The chemical industry appreciates sapphire for parts subject to aggressive environments such as acid or bases, high pressures and high temperatures.
- In wafers, sapphire plays an important role in microelectronics as a highly reliable insulator.
- Due to its optical properties, high hardness and resistance to all chemicals, sapphire has many advantages for the medical industry.
