H.C. Starck's Molybdenum Glass Melting Electrodes (GME) on display at the 71st Glass Problems Conference at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio on October 19-20. Molybdenum is the # 1 choice for glass melting with its exceptional properties that meet the specific requirements: mechanical, electrical, process, corrosion, and cost conditions of the glass melting process.
Meet our team of glass experts Jack Miles and Dale Lathrop, Table 28 who will be on hand to discuss solutions to your critical glass applications. As a worldwide leader in specialty metals and alloy-based systems, H.C. Starck has state-of-the-art laboratories where research and development are key factors in H.C. Starck's success with innovative product and material solutions.
Our expertise in core competency materials: molybdenum, tungsten and their alloys has greatly profited the glass industry and its applications in melting, homogenizing, and feeding of glass products. At H.C. Starck, we produce superior glass melting electrodes using both traditional powder metallurgical processing and an "exclusive" electron beam (EB) melting process resulting in 99.95% purity and 100% density molybdenum GMEs.
H.C. Starck has customer-focused service and highly qualified engineers dedicated to assist and guide you in choosing the best solution for all refractory metal applications in glass production. As a worldwide supplier of high performance materials we have manufacturing facilities strategically located in the U.S. and Europe to service you.
