Glass Type: Borosilicate
Borofloat® glass is manufactured by Schott and is a highly chemical resistant borosilicate glass with low thermal expansion that is produced using a float process. Other key properties include an average 80/50 scratch/dig surface quality, high thermal resistance and excellent transmission. Borofloat® can be used as a substitute for Corning Pyrex® in most cases. The materials differ slightly in chemical composition. SGP can CNC mill, drill, cut, lap, and polish Borofloat® to any dimension, shape or surface finish.
