Before we dwell on the multiple companies that manufacture borosil glass or borosilicate glass in our great country, it is important to know what borosilicate glass is all about. Borosilicate glass is a type of glass which allows for a very low chance of thermal expansion. This means it will not crack under extreme temperature changes like regular glass. It is extremely durable and that has made it the go to glass choice for high-end restaurants, laboratories and wineries. This magic ingredient (boron trioxide) is what elevates this glass to become thermal shock resistant and makes it a favorite among multiple industries and sectors all over the world.
This rare quality allows a borosilicate glass to go straight from a freezer to an oven rack without cracking. For us laymen, this simply means that we can pour boiling hot water into borosilicate glass if we wanted to have steep tea or coffee, without worrying about shattering or cracking the glass. A quick fix isn’t it when we are working on a time restraint. That being the case, here are a few companies in India that are the leading manufacturers of borosilicate glass should you want to thank them for what they help you with.
