Our core products for the cost-efficient construction and operation of glass melting facilities:

  • Electric heating panels and cylinders (MoSi2 + polycrystalline (PCW) mullite/AI2O3 wool) up to 1,650°C, brand name MolyTec®
  • Electric heating elements (MoSi2) 1,700 & 1,800, brand name MolyCom®
  • Insulating boards, shapes & cylinders (polycrystalline (PCW) mullite/AI2O3 wool) from 1,250°C to 1,850°C application temperature, brand name UltraBoard® & UltraVac®

Electric heating panels

MolyTec® are heating panels and cylinders for an application temperature up to 1,650°C. The electric heating systems are a combination of MolyCom® heating elements and UltraBoard® or UltraVac® which are produced and adjusted on customer request. They are used in the special glass industry for melting furnaces for example lead crystal glass & soda-lime glass or other special glasses as roof heaters of feeder fore-hearths.

 Electric heating elements

MolyCom® electric heating elements are composed of the intermetallic compound molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2) for an application temperature up to 1,720°C. They are used for example in pot furnaces and in feeder systems of glass melting furnaces. M.E.SCHUPP® industrial standard is MolyCom®-Ultra. For the manufacturing of high quality glass products, we offer a high purity variant, MolyCom®-Hyper. Special dimensions and designs are available on customer request.


UltraBoard® (insulation boards) and UltraVac® (molded parts and cylinders) are solid high-temperature insulation materials that are easy in process. They are made of polycrystalline (PCW) mullite/AI2O3 wool and especially designed for an application temperature from 1,250°C to 1,850°C. UltraBoard®s are used as insulation for laboratory and industrial furnaces for quick heating and cooling, applied in electrical high-temperature furnaces.

The employees at M.E.SCHUPP® make your business their own. We work closely with you to find the optimal technical solution for your special requirements. Our business is international, but our philosophy is typically German: quality, reliability, punctuality!
