Benefits of High Borosilicate Glass Containers

Borosilicate glass is a type of glass that is stronger than standard soda-lime glass in relation to its thickness and shape. This type of glass is made of boron trioxide which makes it resistant to thermal shock and many other types of chemical attacks, making it ideal for use in industry. Borosilicate glass is extensively used in chemistry labs due to its high resistance to thermal shock, hazardous chemicals, ionizing radiation, vacuum space, and maintaining a constant surface temperature with minimized condensation on the inside wall of the container or its contents.

The difference between borosilicate glass and soda lime glass is their cost, chemical resistance, and ability to change shape. Borosilicate glass is generally more expensive than standard soda-lime glass, but it has some special properties that make it worth the extra cost. Borosilicate glass is chemically resistant to concentrated acids and bases diluted in water as well as organic solvents. It can be used for storing sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide, as well as hydrochloric acid. It can handle exposure to steam at 400℃ for one hour whereas soda-lime glass would fail to resist damage at 250℃.

Uses of Borosilicate Glass

Borosilicate glass has many uses in industry and daily lifedue to its low absorption of heat and chemical compounds; corrosive environments; minimal condensation; and high resistance to ionizing radiation on the insides of containers. In industry, borosilicate glass is mainly used to store or handle chemicals such as sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, and hydrochloric acid. It can be used in the production of glass for electronics and for a wide range of industrial uses. In our daily life, borosilicate glass is often made into food containers such as water cups, beverage bottles. Even more, some teapots and candle jars are made from borosilicate glass.

Benefits of Using Borosilicate Glass

The main benefit of using borosilicate glass is its small risk of shattering. It is easily safe to handle, store, and transport due to its resistance to thermal shock and chemicals. The material is much safer for handling in the industry and daily life uses due to its resistance to harsh acids and bases as well as light gases that cause fuming, incandescence, and gasification of other materials. It can be used for a wide range of applications such as laboratory glassware, chemical storage boxes, medical laboratory equipment, handheld instruments and various food containers.

Another benefit of using borosilicate glass is that it is environmental-friendly. Plastic impurities that are used to make other types of glass are eliminated during the manufacturing process of borosilicate glass. When used to store food, borosilicate glass allows food to withstand heat, acidity, and light.

In addition, the taste, taste, appearance, and safety of food are not affected after using borosilicate glass. Among all the available types of glasses, borosilicate glass is very common in laboratories. It has highly useful properties that make it an excellent material for the manufacture of laboratory equipment and glassware. The material can be used in the industry to handle harsh chemicals, heat, and light and acidic foods. Borosilicate glass is an ideal product for laboratory use as it is cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
