Laboratory Advantages of Borosilicate Glassware

Borosilicate glass, which is made by adding boric oxide to the glass-making process, has the ability to tolerate temperature changes without shattering. Borosilicate glass has a maximum working temperature of 500° C, and can transition quickly from hot to cold or vice versa. This ability makes this type of glass very desirable for laboratory uses, which often involve heating or adding heated liquids to the glassware.

Kimble Chase manufactures several grades of borosilicate glass, including its trademarked Kimax® glass brand. Types of reusable laboratory glassware made with borosilicate glass includes:

  • Beakers
  • Erlenmeyer flasks
  • Petri dishes
