Electronical Sealing

Glass tubes are used in numerous electronic applications where discrete electronic components must be protected from the harsh environments. We offer IR absorbing glass that enables laser sealing.  Accu-Glass also produces custom glass beads used to produce glass-to-metal feed throughs and hermetically sealed connectors within the electronics industry.  Our glass compositions are suitable for sealing glass to metals that include Kovar, stainless steel, tungsten and titanium.

Glass provide superior electrical isolation, due to:

  • High dielectric breakdown voltage
  • Wide temperature range of operation
  • Mechanical stability
  • Chemical resistance
  • Ability to hermetically seal against metal

Some applications include specialty shaped glass packaging for:

  • Reed switch bodies
  • Diode glass sleeves
  • RFID transponders
  • Flat panel displays and
  • Thermistors
  • Fuse bodies
