Almost everyone has heard of Ceran® glass-ceramic panels, a SCHOTT classic success story. However, glass-ceramic cooktop panels are just one of the many product solutions that SCHOTT Home Tech has to offer. As a one-stop partner, SCHOTT offers customers everything under one umbrella. From pyrolytic self-cleaning oven doors and control panels to encapsulated refrigerator shelves and innovative solutions in electronics, we provide the solutions the market needs.

With the extensive know how in special glass and glass-ceramics as well as the benefit of the synergies that result within the SCHOTT Group, the White Goods Business Unit offers a wide range of expertise in the home appliance market. SCHOTT is able to adapt different processing technologies, materials, components, and modules to the needs of the appliance industry. Specifically, SCHOTT Baron offers a complete assembly service, including components such as Ceran®. These synergies are complemented by the proximity to the customers’ markets around the world, providing outstanding and innovative product solutions.

What are the reasons for Ceran’s success? Ceran® stands for technological superiority combined with attractive design. It is no wonder that more than 60 million Ceran® glass-ceramic cooktop panels have already been sold. Due to SCHOTT’s high processing capabilities, attractive design is not only limited to the top of the appliance, but also includes the front of the range with oven doors and control panels made by Gemtron in North America and SCHOTT Glaverbel in Europe and South America, both of which are SCHOTT joint venture companies. Its mechanical and thermal properties make this value-added tempered float glass an ideal component of home appliances, commercial refrigerators/freezers, and many other industrial applications. In addition, creative system solutions are provided by electronic components. Touch sensors and controls offer high durability and safety and can be supplied with different substrates, back lighting, displays, and as assembled modules.
