What is borosilicate glass?

Borosilicate glass is a type of glass that is known for its exceptional strength and durability. It is made from a mixture of boron trioxide, silica, and other minor components that are melted together at high temperatures. The resulting glass has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, which means that it can withstand sudden changes in temperature without cracking or breaking.

One of the most significant benefits of borosilicate glass is its resistance to thermal shock. This property makes it ideal for use in laboratory and industrial settings where sudden temperature changes are common. For example, borosilicate glass is commonly used in test tubes, beakers, and other laboratory equipment because it can withstand exposure to high temperatures and sudden changes in temperature without breaking.

Borosilicate glass is also highly resistant to chemical corrosion and is therefore an excellent choice for storing and transporting hazardous chemicals. Additionally, it is transparent, making it ideal for use in optics and lighting applications.
