Ultra Low Expansion Glass-Ceramic (CCZ)
CLEARCERAM®-Z is a glass-ceramic with an Ultra-Low Thermal Expansion Coefficient. This material was developed by Ohara based on our knowledge of High Homogeneity melting and Precise Crystallization. This material is produced under tightly controlled conditions and offers outstanding thermal, mechanical and chemical properties. There are two versions of CLEARCERAM®-Z available based on thermal expansion differences; Regular and CCZ-HS.
Glass-Ceramic Polished Substrates for DWDM Filters (WMS-15)
Ohara’s WMS-15 glass-ceramic substrates will enable manufacturers to produce leading edge DWDM and Gain-Flattening Filters. Our WMS substrates will facilitate the
production of filters with extremely low thermal wavelength drift and low insertion loss values. WMS-15 has improved internal transmittance and exceptionally low surface
Lithium-Ion Conducting Glass-Ceramic (LIC-GC™)
LICGC™ is a lithium ion conducting glass ceramic that was developed to serve as a true solid state electrolyte or separator in next generation lithium batteries and other electrochemical devices. The unique properties of LICGC™ make it the enabling component in advanced lithium metal cells.
Glass-Ceramic Substrates for Hard Disks (TS-10 )
TS-10 glass-ceramic substrates are used in magnetic media disks for Hard Disk Drives. TS-10 substrates offer the key properties necessary for today's higher areal density, smaller, thinner drive designs. TS-10 provides low surface roughness & flatness values, ultra-low glide heights and excellent shock resistance. TS-10's high operating temperature makes it ideally suited for future perpendicular recording media.
