Borosilicate glass properties
Borosilicate is the most commonly used type of glass in laboratory environments because of its excellent chemical resistance and thermal durability. Borosilicate glass is also resistant to scratches and abrasions and is found in many households; the most common brand name being Pyrex.
Borosilicate glass displays higher chemical durability than conventional glass types such as soda-lime glass. It has high hydrolytic resistance and excellent resistance to acids, making it an ideal material for engineers and product designers to use.
Borosilicate glass offers exceptionally high light transmission from UV-A to IR and delivers outstanding visual quality.
