What is Borosilicate Glass?

Borosilicate glass types

Figure 1: An image of a finished product of borosilicate glass – a borosilicate glass bottle

It is a specialty type of glass that’s made from the usual components that make glass up with boron trioxide added. Because of this, the glass will be a lot stronger, more durable, and will be more resistant even under sudden temperature changes.

You’ll find borosilicate glass in many different shapes and sizes, among which would include glass sheets, tubes, hexagonal rods, regular rods, half-shaped rods, and many more!

When it comes to the sizes, there are a lot you can choose from, especially if you choose to go with us here at SXET Glass Co., Ltd., the best and most-trusted borosilicate glass supplier in the whole of China.

Borosilicate Glass Sizes

Borosilicate glass cut to size

Generally, the sizes of borosilicate glasses differ from one (1) order to another. It’s not like the sizes are the same from a manufacturer.

Furthermore, the sizes will depend on what shape the borosilicate glass is. For you to understand it much better, here’s a table enumerating the most common sizes for shapes.

Borosilicate Glass Sheets

Borosilicate glass safety

Figure 2: An image of a borosilicate glass sheet standard size

The most commonly bought sizes for borosilicate glass sheets include 10 x 10, 12 x 12, 15 x 15, up to 50 x 50. Of course, these sizes aren’t standard because there would still be customizations on the thickness and the overall size of the borosilicate glass sheet.

Borosilicate Glass Tubes

Figure 3: A standard borosilicate glass tube size

Borosilicate glass tubes have more than 100 different sizes. They range from around 0.8mm to 325mm for 4mm in diameter, as well as 9.0mm thick for whatever size in between. This basically means that you can freely get borosilicate glass tubing in whatever size.

Borosilicate Glass Rods

Figure 4: An image of a borosilicate glass rod standard size

You can also purchase borosilicate glass rods in whatever size. They’re basically the same size as glass tubes, but without the opening or the mouth. So, don’t confuse yourselves as to what borosilicate glass rods are.

Is Borosilicate Glass the Same as Pyrex?

Borosilicate gauge glass

Figure 5: Pyrex is the same as borosilicate – Pyrex is just one of the most famous brands that manufacture borosilicate glass products

Pyrex is, in fact, made from borosilicate glass. If you do a quick search of it, you’ll see that Pyrex has no major difference with borosilicate. Pyrex is actually a subset of borosilicate and the methods of producing or creating Pyrex is typically the same as how borosilicate is.

The brand is only trademarked as “Pyrex” because it is more marketable as Pyrex versus being marketed as borosilicate glass.

One detailed distinctive difference you could have with them is their use. Pyrex, as what we know it, is mostly used in kitchenware and other laboratory applications. Borosilicate glass, on the other hand, are used in every aspect there is that requires borosilicate glass.

So, what uses, and applications can you have for borosilicate glass?

Where is Borosilicate Glass Used?

Borosilicate float glass

As we mentioned above, the most common uses for borosilicate glass would be in laboratory apparatus and kitchenware. Because of its strength, resistance to heat and temperature changes, as well as acidity barriers, it’s popularly used for these instances.

Apart from this, you can also make use of borosilicate glass in the following business industries and sectors:

  • Aircraft Industry
  • Defense Industry
  • Aerospace and Aviation Industry
  • Optical Industry
  • Bakeware, Cookware, and Kitchenware Industry
  • Marine and Maritime Industry
  • Lighting and Fixtures Industry
  • Research & Development Industry
  • And Many More!

The strength, durability, and overall versatility of borosilicate glass make them extremely useful for many different types of application. Let alone the fact that borosilicate glasses aren’t that difficult to source out and find in the market, they’re really something you’ll be able to take advantage of.

What Are the Properties of Borosilicate Glass?

Durable borosilicate glass

Borosilicate glasses are special in comparison to standard soda-lime glass. As a matter of fact, you’ll find them useful in a lot of different applications.

The following are the most-known properties of borosilicate glass; they’re the most common reasons why borosilicate glass units are sold:

  • Acid Resistant
  • Water-Resistant
  • Alkali Resistant
  • Thermal Shock Resistant
  • Heat and Temperature Resistant

These are the primary properties that makeup borosilicate glass, whether they’re tubes, rods, sheets, and even unorthodox shapes and forms.

Borosilicate Glass vs. Tempered Glass: Are They the Same?

Toughened borosilicate glass

Figure 9: A sample image of tempered glass units, which are very different from what borosilicate glass units are

No, borosilicate glass is not the same as tempered glass. They are two (2) very different materials and are also used very differently.

Although tempered glass and borosilicate glass are very much alike, there are a couple of things that make them different and distinct from one another. Here’s a table you can use to find out whether the material you’re dealing with is either tempered glass or borosilicate glass.

Tempered GlassBorosilicate Glass
It’s a physical function. The tempering happens to the surface of the glass, not by altering chemistry.Borosilicate glass is made from distinct types of materials and components.
They need to be thicker than regular glass because they need to withstand pressure, shock, and temperature.It’s typically just the same size as standard glass or soda-lime glass.
Slightly heavier than other types and kinds of glass.Lightweight and easier to transport than tempered glass.
Subjective to heat.Has high thermal shock resistance and lower thermal expansion factor.

A lot of people may think that borosilicate glass is just the same as tempered glass, but when you look at it closer and deeper, you’ll see that the two (2) materials are far from each other.

Is Borosilicate Glass Heat Resistant?

Borosilicate window

Figure 10: Borosilicate glass product for laboratory apparatus because they are heat resistant

Yes, borosilicate glass is a material that is extremely heat and cold resistant. This means that if they’re subjected in low and high temperatures, there’ll be little-to-no changes on their physical attributes.

In addition, its excellent heat resistance, borosilicate glass units are also known to have excellent levels of thermal shock resistance, too!

To let you know of it further, the maximum thermal shock resistance of borosilicate glass is about 160°C. However, borosilicate glass’s atmospheric temperature’s strain point can reach up to 500 °C.

In a more accurate sense, borosilicate glass units can be heated up to 392 °C or about 446 °F for short-term use. Long-term use, however, it can survive up to 400 °C or 752 °F.

Benefits of Using Borosilicate Glass

There are a lot of benefits and advantages of using borosilicate glass, especially in some areas of application. However, the most common benefits you can have for them include, but are not limited to:

Optical Clarity

By using borosilicate glass, you can guarantee that you’ll be able to see through them clearly and visibly. Its smooth surface can offer views that are unobstructive and transparent.

However, the transparency of borosilicate glass can substantially decrease if coatings are applied and subjected to its surface.

Corrosion Resistance

Other than their temperature resistance, borosilicate glass units are also known for their resistance and resilience against corrosion. All borosilicate glass units, whether they’re tubes, rods, sheets, and even specific and custom shapes undergo corrosion tests.

It can successfully and effectively resist most acids and acid mixtures, making sure that they’re not going to be damaged or altered in any way.

Temperature Range

Borosilicate glass’s resistance to temperature isn’t just for the fluctuation of high temperatures, it applies to coldness, too! This is one of the properties that make them fit in pharmaceutical, medical, and even chemical processes.

The combination of chemical or corrosion resistance and temperature ranges make them an instant hit in the chemical industry.


Unlike other types of similar glass, borosilicate glass does not have any ion exchange between the units and the media used; hence, there aren’t any catalytic effects when they’re manufactured.

In simpler terms, borosilicate glass units are not flammable and are not in danger of being caught in fire. This is the primary reason why it’s the type of specialty glass used in chemical projects – they do not emit bad smells, tastes, or any alterations on the environment they’re in.


Last, but most definitely not least is the affordability of borosilicate glass. By now, you should be aware of how much it will cost you if you purchase borosilicate glass units independently or retail.

And if you compare it to other types of glass units, you’ll find how cheap and affordable they are. It’s sustainable, affordable, and easy to maintain compared to other types of glass.

These are the top benefits of choosing and using borosilicate glass units for whatever glass application you may have for them.

Borosilicate Glass Trade Names

Clear borosilicate glass

To help you understand it more, borosilicate glass is not the type of glass that has various types. Borosilicate glass units are sold and marketed under many different trade names, and these trade names are actually how we know them.

There are a lot of different trade names of borosilicate glass in the market today. But the most common ones are:

  • Pyrex
  • Duran
  • Marinex
  • Gemstone Well
  • BSC 51 by NIPRO
  • Borosil

These are the different ways of identifying borosilicate glass. So, when you encounter any of these, don’t be confused because they are all borosilicate glasses – the terms of how they’re called is just what’s different.

Can Borosilicate Glass Replace Soda-Lime Glass?

Soda lime borosilicate glass

Figure 10: An image of a standard soda-lime glass used to form a test tube

Yes, borosilicate glass can definitely replace soda-lime glass, especially if it’s going to be used for specific applications in the industries that use glass.

In terms of strength, hardness, and durability, soda-lime glass falls a lot shorter than borosilicate glass. They’re weaker, they shatter, they do not react to heat and temperature well, and they’re more fragile than borosilicate glass.

However, there are certain applications and instances where the fragility of soda-lime glass is needed. For instance, the cover of fire alarms. Imagine if borosilicate glass is the type of glass used, do you think that the fire alarm will easily be toggled? Of course no.

So, to answer the question, yes, it can absolutely be an alternative to soda-lime glass. The catch is, this shall only be applicable to a select number of industries and uses.

What is the Temperature Range of Borosilicate Glass?

Etching borosilicate glass

The temperature span of borosilicate glass ranges between 400 °C for short-term, and about 200 to 250 °C for long-term or standard usage.

This is far from the temperature range of most soda-lime glass units and other types of glasses because borosilicate glass units are purposely made to withstand heat, temperature, and even shock.

What Shapes of Borosilicate Glass Are Available?

Figure 11: Borosilicate glass products can be in any shape that the client wants, it can be tubes, rods, sheets, circles, or even custom shapes!

Borosilicate glass products are available in many different shapes and forms. As we mentioned above, there’s no limit to shapes and forms of borosilicate glass. You can buy them depending on how you want and need them.

But the most common shapes you can purchase them in include long tubes, short tubes, long rods, short rods, and sheets!

These are the general shapes and forms that you can find them in. However, your choices aren’t just limited to these. In fact, there are certain manufacturers that can provide custom shapes for borosilicate glass units, like us here at SXET Glass Co., Ltd.
