SCHOTT Introduces CERAN EXCITE Product Portfolio

The new glass-ceramic materials and coatings enable functional and aesthetic LED lighting.

SCHOTT introduced CERAN EXCITE, a portfolio of light-optimized materials, filters, and coatings that enable LED light sources mounted under the cooktop to shine through with clarity and brightness.

White light shines four times brighter than in conventional cooktops, for example. 

The portfolio supports household appliance manufacturers in realizing customized solutions, and leading brands have already launched products with the new CERAN EXCITE technologies. The portfolio was presented at the SCHOTT CERAN Experience 2018 at ewerk Berlin – an exclusive industry event which ran parallel to IFA 2018.

The materials can be supplemented with coating and filter solutions that enhance the color location of light elements, light shaping, and homogeneous light distribution.
 
The CERAN EXCITE portfolio enables lighting elements to be used throughout the cooktop – even in the cooktop’s heated zones, where high cooking temperatures have to be endured. These lighting concepts have particularly interesting consequences for induction technology, which, unlike gas or electric stoves, has yet to accommodate advanced visual feedback. The lighting portfolio from CERAN EXCIT® provides new possibilities in the user design interface of cooktops, drawing attention to cooking zones for greater safety and an emotional connection with the cook.

Appliance manufacturers can also integrate high-tech smart functions such as light symbols, monochrome, and even high-resolution TFT displays, which are very popular among fans of cooking technology.

“Light is a highly emotional component that makes products more exciting. As an interface of interaction, it can visually support many of the cooktop’s functions, meeting the high demands of users,” said Dr. Joern Besinger, head of product management & new business development at SCHOTT CERAN.
