After years of study and research in collaboration with the University of Erlangen in Germany and extensive independent testing, SchottZwiesel has succeeded in creating a new Crystal Glass. By eliminating lead content from the glass composition and replacing it with Titanium and Zirconium a new superior crystal is born- Tritan Crystal.

The Tritan composition along with new manufacturing technology exclusive to Schott Zwiesel delivers a superior Crystal Glass in its appearance, durability, and design. The Tritan Crystal is used by renowned sommeliers, restaurants, cruise lines and resorts worldwide.

Additional strength added to vulnerable zones. There are three zones on a piece of stemware that are most prone to breakage:

  • the rim
  • the junction of the bowl and stem
  • and the junction of the foot and the stem.
Schott Zwiesel technology individually tempers each one of these zones to give added strength to the tritan composition. The stemware resists chipping and breakage to stand up to the abuse of daily use. This technology creates lasting durability and longer life to the stemware, without compromising the aesthetic quality of the product.

Dishwasher Safe:
Tritan Crystal composition has been proven through independent testing to be completely dishwasher safe. After 1,000 dishwasher cycles there were no defects, discoloration, scratching, cloudy appearance, spotting, stains or breakage. Tritan Crystal by Schott Zwiesel will maintain its brilliance and look for the life of the glass.

Resilient:
Tritan Crystal is break resistant. Tritan resists the daily use you would normally give to your everyday glassware. Fine lead free Tritan Crystal resist chipping, scratching, and impacts associated with daily use.

Brilliant:
Schott Zwiesel Tritan Crystal composition is the hardest most brilliant crystal glass in the world. Light passes and reflects through Tritan Crystal creating a clarity, brilliance, and luster that will remind you of a diamond.
