Sapphire is one of nature’s hardest materials. The durability and scratch resistance of custom sapphire windows make them a critical component in many consumer products, from watches and glasses to cell phone screens. They are also used in the medical industry, the chemical processing industry, the surveillance and defense industries, and anywhere else where excellent transmission of ultraviolet, visible and infrared wavelengths, resistance to common acids and chemicals, and superior scratch resistance is required.
