QUARTZ

Quartz glass

Final Advanced Materials provides a range of quartz glass parts : rods, tubes, boards, machined parts according to your drawings... We can machine quartz part and also a full range of technical machinable ceramics.

The electrical fusion process uses resistance heating to melt highly refined quartz sand into semi finished quartz glass products.
