Tubes and capillaries made of borosilicate glass 3.3

Product specifications: Tubes and capillaries 

Material: Borosilicate glass 3.3

You can find more information about the glass in our info data sheet.

Borosilicate tube 3.3 is required wherever visual inspection of processes in pipelines must be guaranteed under pressure, thermal and chemical stress.

The high level of safety is achieved by using a special borosilicate glass with good chemical resistance, exceptional purity and homogeneity. The low thermal expansion typical of this borosilicate glass results in a particularly high thermal shock resistance.

Production and quality checks in the process sequence guarantee the property values of the glasses and the tight dimensional tolerances. Tensile, compressive and torsional forces must be avoided under all circumstances.
