The premium manufacturer V-Zug is the first customer to introduce a series of appliances that feature the new super-coating.Thanks to a special coating, the surface of SCHOTT CERAN® MiradurTM is almost as hard as a diamond, making it the world’s only scratch-resistant glass-ceramic cooktop panel of this level of robustness. This will not only please chefs, kitchen owners and home appliance manufacturers – well-known experts from the design and furnishing sector will also appreciate it.The five-member expert jury of the “2017 ICONIC AWARDS: Interior Innovation” competition, for example, have awarded top prize to the new development from the SCHOTT technology group. The cooktop panel is one of 29 products honored as “Best of the Best” in the “Kitchen and Household” category. In the judges’ opinion, the award-winning products illustrate innovative top performance. SCHOTT CERAN® MiradurTM convinced them due to its surface, which is six times harder than conventional glass-ceramic cooktop panels and thus much less sensitive to abrasion, which can occur on the surface when pots and pans are moved.imm cologne: exhibition of award winners“We are very pleased to have received this award.
