Why We Love Borosilicate Glass？
Borosilicate glass has been a preferred material of construction for virtually all modern laboratory glassware and glass process equipment for decades, with wide usage throughout the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Its special properties of chemical and thermal resistances make it truly an exceptional glass with unique characteristics that distinguish it from other materials of construction. But how is it possible to feel warm and fuzzy about glass? Okay, maybe “love” is a bit too strong of a term to use, but we really, really like it and think you’ll find it pretty useful too.
Just because glass can break when dropped or mishandled does not mean it is a weaker material of construction. Glass components have proven to be durable and reliable over many years of operation when installed and handled correctly. Here’s what we love about borosilicate glass - it’s clear, easy to clean, inert, economical, chemical and corrosion resistant and is a thermal champion. From laboratory/research and development up to full production, glass components and systems are available in a wide range of sizes and designs to build a custom solution based on the volume of your operation. These systems include (but are not limited to) reaction, distillation, extraction, evaporation, cryogenic and absorption systems.
