Glass-To-Metal Seal

A glass-to-metal seal is a method used to join glass and metal components in various engineering and manufacturing applications. This type of seal is particularly useful when a hermetic (airtight) and durable connection is required between the glass and metal parts.
The process typically involves carefully matching coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE) between the glass and metal materials to prevent cracking or breaking due to thermal stress during heating and cooling cycles. This is crucial for ensuring the integrity of the seal, especially in applications where temperature fluctuations are common.
