scientific equipment are acknowledged for its precision design, durability, high resistivity and longer functional life. There are two types of Silicaware – Translucent Silicaware and Transparent Silicaware
Silica (SiO2) is the chief constituent of earth’s crust. It is present in various forms, the most common being called Quartz which is crystalline in character. Typical examples are silica sand and rock crystals.
Vitreous Silica is the glassy modification of Silicon dioxide (SiO2) with a purity of at least 99.8% by weight in the translucent form and over 99.9% (SiO2) in the transparent forms.
It is also sometimes referred to as vitreous silica, quartz glass, silica glass, fused quartz or fused silica. Commercially the word fused silica is designated to the translucent variety and fused quartz to the transparent variety.
