SCHOTT Borofloat 33 Floated Borosilicate Glass Tech Note

Source: Abrisa Technologies

Abrisa Technologies provides custom fabrication and coating of SCHOTT Borofloat® 33; floated borosilicate glass. Generally used in applications with extreme thermal and/or chemical demands, Borofloat® 33 is the glass of choice when conventional float glass such as soda-lime cannot meet the tough chemical and thermal specifications.

The glass has exceptional optical quality due to the strict micro-float manufacturing process resulting in a homogeneous material with low metal inclusions for a mirror-like surface and a high degree of flatness. Borofloat® 33 exceeds the chemical durability of most metals and other materials. Rigorous specification control assures consistent performance.
