Through their subsidiary, The Technical Glass Co., Goodfellow offers high-precision glass tubes in a wide range of shapes, sizes and materials for applications where precision is essential, such as in engineering, optical applications, and research.
Round, capillary, multihole, profiled, square and rectangular tubes are available in precision bore diameters ranging from 0.05mm ID to 300mm ID, with larger diameters available upon request. In addition to standard glass tubing materials such as soda lime glass, borosilicate glass, quartz, and sapphire, specialty materials such as aluminosilicate glass, lead-free glass, and sealing glasses (e.g., Kovar Sealing Glass [Corning Inc.]) can be used to fabricate tubes to exacting specifications. To help ensure that the correct material is selected for a particular application, Goodfellow and Technical Glass specialists are available to work with customers at all stages of product development.
For more than 40 years, the Goodfellow name has been synonymous with small quantities of high-quality metals, polymers, ceramics and other materials that meet the research, development, and specialised production requirements of science and industry worldwide. Goodfellow Cambridge Ltd. is part of the Goodfellow Group of Companies, which also includes The Technical Glass Company (UK), Goodfellow Corporation, Goodfellow SARL, Goodfellow GmbH, and the Shanghai Representative Office of Goodfellow Cambridge Ltd.
