Learn about our glassware

Two types of glass commonly used for laboratory glassware are Soda-Lime and Borosilicate glass. Soda-lime glass is less chemically resistant than borosilicate glass and is typically suitable for storing dry powders and for containers for general sample storage applications. This glass type has only moderate hydrolytic resistance. Expansion borosilicate glass has a very high resistance to attack from water, acids, salt solutions, halogens and organic solvents. Only hydrofluoric acid, hot concentrated phosphoric acid and strong alkaline solutions cause significant corrosion. Neutral borosilicate glass has excellent chemical resistance properties which make it ideal for the storing or packaging of acidic, neutral and alkaline products and for injectable solutions.

Interlab stocks a range of stress-free borosilicate glass from Borosil. Our range of glassware is manufactured with Borosilicate Glass 3.3, the low expansion glass is a high performing specialty glass that has several properties which make it ideal for use in laboratories. Borosilicate glass is highly resistant to water, neutral and acid solutions, concentrated acids and acid mixtures, and to chlorine, bromine, iodine and organic solvents. Its low alkalinity makes it less prone to leaching. This means our glass is chemically durable, resistant to thermal shock and has mechanical strength properties.
