Platinum in the Glass Industry- Glass Industry Casting Services

TechForm serves the glass industry with high-temperature and corrosion resistant platinum rhodium alloys.  Our deep understanding of the importance of optimal density and mechanical properties for this function-critical industry make us an ideal partner towards reducing costs through net-shape and near-net-shape geometries.

Why Platinum?

Platinum’s unique properties make it irreplaceable in a vast number of applications.  For glass manufacturing, these desirable properties will typically fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • Corrosion Resistance
  • High Temperature Capability

Product Development

TechForm is an experienced co-developer of products, working in tandem with our customers to assure that cast products are developed as efficiently and effectively as possible.  The prototyping process at TechForm is highly flexible with the use of 3D pattern printing, allowing for simultaneous production of multiple design iterations when desired. Once a final design is determined through prototyping, hard tooling for wax or plastic injection can be produced with minimal risk for the need of downstream modifications.
