Sapphire is a remarkable material combining optical clarity,high strength and electrical isolation.With
our many years of service, Omley has experience brazing sapphire in all kinds of geometries and for a wide array of applications .

Some of the more common applications include vacuum viewports, protective optical shields, sapphire-tipped process probes, CCDenclosures ,lamphousings ,and high pressure windows. Sapphire canal so be used as an insulator material in feed through and line-break applications .
As is the case with all aluminum oxide materials, brazing can be accomplished using either the poly/manganese metalization process or the active brazing process. Each processhas its strength sand limitations. Omley is very
experienced with both processes and can make recommendations based the geometry and process requirements of your project.
