Sitall CO-115M (Astrositall®)
SITALL СО115М is a crystalline glass ceramic material with ultra low Coefficient of thermal expansion. SITALL СО115М is an ideal material to be used for manufacturing of astronomical telescopes mirrors and other optical parts that require linear dimensions and surface figure stability at significant temperature changes. Thermal stability of SITALL material enables the fabrication of high precision mirrors within quicker time of treatment process since testing measurements are able to be conducted not waiting until thermal equilibrium is achieved.
