Glass has properties which make it perfectly destined for deep-sea use. It’s corrosion resistance, it’s lightness, it’s chemical, electrical and magnetic inertness and it’s optical qualities add up to a valuable combination.
VITROVEX® is a 3.3 borosilicate glass with standardised physical, chemical, electrical and optical properties, also well known as DURAN®. Its very low potassium content (<0.5%) results in low K40 content.
It is moulded into spheres and thick wall tubes by means of intricate processing and thermal post-treatments
