Glass To Metal Sealing Technology

Glass-to-metal sealing (GTMS) technology enables the creation of hermetic seals between glass and metal components, crucial for protecting sensitive parts in industries like electronics, aerospace, and medical devices. The process involves carefully selecting compatible materials based on their coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE), followed by thorough surface preparation to remove contaminants. Components are then assembled and subjected to high temperatures, using techniques like brazing or soldering, to facilitate bonding. Cooling and annealing follow to relieve stresses and strengthen the seal. GTMS offers advantages such as hermeticity, high temperature resistance, chemical compatibility, mechanical strength, and versatility, making it indispensable for applications requiring robust protection and reliability.
