Jul 05, 2018

Borosilicate glass is a type of glass with silica and boron trioxide as the main glass-forming constituents.

Borosilicate glass has a wide variety of uses ranging from cookware to lab equipment, as well as a component of high-quality products such as implantable medical devices and devices used in space exploration.

Glass cookware is another common usage. Borosilicate glass is used for measuring cups, featuring screen printed markings providing graduated measurements. Borosilicate glass is sometimes used for high-quality beverage glassware. 

Borosilicate glass is thin and durable, microwave- and dishwasher-safe.
