Welcome to Glass Made of Ideas

Glass manufacturing is as old as civilization itself, yet new techniques continue to reveal unknown applications and strengths of this material. SCHOTT has been innovating and growing the specialty glass industry for the past 125 years. And despite all those years and countless advancements, the most renowned and useful trait of glass remains its transparency.

In the spirit of that transparency, SCHOTT North America is thrilled to welcome you to our new blog, “Glass Made of Ideas.” Through this blog, we hope to establish a platform where innovators and consumers alike can gain a clear view into cutting-edge glass technology and innovations throughout the industry. We hope to lead thoughtful discussions about the state of high-tech glass today and extrapolate that knowledge into the future.

Our blog will feature exclusive articles from our top movers and shakers, focusing on everything from our corporate news to the uses of glass in defense and energy, design, home technologies, optics, and pharmaceutical and medical applications.

We will tell the story of glass through all types of digital content — text, photos, slideshows, and more. Visual elements will highlight the beauty and functionality of glass, while succinct content will underscore its importance.

As a company that lives and breathes glass, we could talk for years about the advantages of glass over steel or how to build the ultimate grill, but we don’t want to be the only voice speaking. We would love to hear from you, our readers. Please join the conversation by sharing a thought or leaving a comment.
