Moores: Glass to Metal Seals (GTMS

Glass to Metal Seals (GTMS)

Glass to metal sealsA glass to metal seal (GTMS) is a vacuum tight bonding between a glass and a firm metal to ensure that the structure is impervious to gas and air and safe for an electric conductor to pass through.

The GTMS can be either a matched or compression seal, in which molten glass is welted to a metal. Kodial glass is sealed directly to a metal, a graded seal then being fabricated to Pyrex glass. Due to the varying thermal expansion of different glasses and metals attaining a hermetic bond can often be difficult.

Forming a hermetic bond is vital to the function of your seal as you don’t want any leakage in your structure. Moores ensure a safe and durable seal by regularly carrying out random product tests within the factory.

At Moores Glassworks, we have tried and tested methods of GTMS manufacture and have developed an efficient and safe process. Our seals use kovar as it has a low thermal expansion, similar to that of glass. The closer the match of the thermal expansion of materials, the tighter and more secure the bond will be.
