Benefits of Choosing Borosilicate Glass over Soda-Lime Glass


  • Soda-lime glass is widely used in window panes and bottles/jars to store food and beverages. It is a more common glass for household purposes or laboratory equipment such as Petri dishes and volumetric glassware which are used directly to heat. 90% of manufactured glass is of soda-lime variety.


  • Borosilicate is used as laboratory glassware, beverage glassware, high-intensity discharge lamps, guitar slides, aquarium heaters, telescopes, flashlights, and thermal insulation tiles. It is also used in science laboratories, restaurants, and wineries. Borosilicate glass cookware such as microwave vessels and bakeware is also popular because of their resistance to heat.


There is no doubt that the properties of borosilicate glassware make it superior to soda-lime glass.
