and Glass Components
Soda-lime Glass is the most commonly available glass and contains both sodium and calcium. This type of glass is used for windows in buildings, bottles and jars and can also be used cost-effectively to make tubes, rods, plates and finished glassware components. Although it will not withstand as high a temperature as borosilicate glass, it can still be successfully used for many different scientific and industrial applications.
Characteristics of soda-lime glass include:
- Can be used up to approximately 80 – 90ºC (untoughened)
- Can be toughened to increase strength and maximum use temperature
- Can be ground or polished to achieve desired finish
- Good electrical insulator
- Good transmission properties for visible light
