How is high borosilicate glass better than regular glass?

Great! Share this article  

What is high borosilicate glass and what are its advantages?

High borosilicate heat-resistant glass is an excellent anticorrosion material. Compared with regular glass, the molecular structure of high borosilicate glass is more compact, and it only needs a small thickness to achieve good earthquake resistance and shatterproof effect strength. High borosilicate heat-resistant glass products usually have a wall thickness of about 1.1mm. They feel light and durable. High borosilicate glass takes borosilicate acid as raw material, and the instantaneous temperature difference is -20°C -150°C. High borosilicate glass has the characteristics of high strength, high temperature resistance, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, temperature change resistance, high transparency, no self-explosion and so on. High borosilicate glass with acid and alkali resistance, strong water resistance, high hardness, friction resistance, easy to clean, not easy to leave stains, does not contain harmful substances to human body and many other advantages close to daily life.

What is the difference between high borosilicate glass and regular glass?

1. High borosilicate glass has low thermal expansion.

High borosilicate glass has a very low thermal expansion coefficient, which is about one-third of that of regular glass. This will reduce the impact caused by temperature gradient stress, and thus has stronger fracture resistance. Because of its very small shape deviation, this makes It has become an indispensable material in telescopes and mirrors. It can also be used to process high-level nuclear waste.

2. High borosilicate glass has little broken damage.

Although it is more resistant to thermal shock than other types of glass, high borosilicate glass can still be broken due to rapid or uneven temperature changes or movement. But when it is broken, the cracks of high borosilicate glass are often larger, rather than crushed. In order to prevent glass products from being damaged when moving, we have to choose the best packaging way.

3. High borosilicate glass is mostly used in heat-resistant equipment.

High borosilicate glass is mostly used for reflective heat-resistant lamp cups of halogen lamps and electrical equipment that must use heat-resistant glass, such as special glass turntables for microwave ovens, microwave oven lampshades, stage lighting reflectors, observation windows for drum washing machines, heat-resistant tea cups and Solar collector tubes.

How to verify whether the glass cup is made of high borosilicate glass?

  1. You can put the cup in the refrigerator for 24 hours and then pour it with 100°C hot water. If it bursts, it must not be high borosilicate glass.
  2. High borosilicate glass has better transparency, more delicate body and smoother hand feeling.

Is high borosilicate glass safe or toxic?

Like regular glass, high borosilicate glass is completely non-toxic. Food and drinks in borosilicate containers generally taste better because the material doesn't leach out like plastic bottles and other BPA-containing packaging.

Is high borosilicate glass durable?

High borosilicate glass has excellent durability. In fact, that makes it so popular and famous.

High borosilicate glass should be manufactured at a higher temperature than regular soda lime glass. Higher manufacturing temperatures give it that heat resistance. More heat is needed to change the chemical structure of the glass.

Is high borosilicate glass BPA free?

High borosilicate glass itself does not contain BPA. However, some products that use borosilicate may have other components made from BPA plastic. When choosing borosilicate products, check the chemical composition of any plastic products. All pure high borosilicate glass products (such as baking pans) are 100% BPA free.

Is high borosilicate glass safe to drink?

High borosilicate glass is safe to drink, just like regular glass. High borosilicate glass can help you improve sustainability and keep plastic waste out of landfills, which is good news for the environment. Plastic pollution is a major problem, so using reusable kettles or bottles made of high borosilicate glass can help a lot.

Is high borosilicate glass worth the price?

For most people, high borosilicate glass is worth the extra money. As discussed, you get many benefits, but few drawbacks. It is very durable and has stood the test of time, while preventing any nasty chemicals from seeping into crystal-clear drinking water. It is reusable and recyclable.
