What is Glass Sealing?

Glass sealing is typically used to hermetically seal insulator and metal together. Kovar and Kovar alloy (Fe:Ni:Co = 54:29:17) are used to jointly seal metal pin such as signal wire and glass by heating them together.

Glass sealing is a method to utilize the properties of metal and glass that have a similar thermal expansion, whereas its disadvantage is the weakness against an external force, such as shock and shrinkage.

Quality Assurance

To ensure a high-quality standard of hermetically sealed products, we perform various inspections and QA programs. These processes include inspections as below, which comply with MIL-STD-883, MIL-PRF-38534, JEDEC No. 9, and Telcordia Standard.

Inspections include:
– Air-tightness
– Helium leak (with mass analyzer)
– Electrical insulating properties
– Electric property (high potential and dielectric resistance)
– Abrasion of a lead line
– Visual and dimensional check
– Solder wettability
– Thermal shock
