From Pyrex® to Borofloat®.
Since the mid-1960s, Verre Industrie has been processing borosilicate glass, originally under the Pyrex® brand and now under the Borofloat® name.
Today, it is used in particular in pharmacy, chemistry, medicine, the construction of furnaces, aeronautics or optics.
Borofloat® has a low coefficient of expansion.
It is distinguished by excellent resistance
– thermal (up to 500°)
– chemical attacks.
Practically without absorption in the visible spectrum (T>90%) and the infrared, Borofloat® has a very high level of transparency and remains practically colorless.
Verre Industrie does process Borofloat® in all its forms and in all common thicknesses.
