Extremely Low Thermal Expansion Glass-Ceramic
ZERODUR® glass-ceramic has an extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion over a wide temperature range. It is ideal in applications where geometrical shape and distance changes must be kept low under temperature variations.
Extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion across a wide temperature range
Excellent CTE homogeneity throughout the total
Wide size range of precise geometrical shapes available
Extremely smooth surface with residual roughness below 1nm
Excellent chemical stability and resistance to harsh atmospheric conditions
By default, the mean coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of ZERODUR® is measured within the temperature range of 0°C to 50°C
