Heat Resistant Glasses Take on a New Role


Gray glass, a glass machining and fabricating manufacturer, offers additional value to its prolific offerings by now including an expanded line of heat resistant glass; Pyrex, Vycor, Quartz and Pyroceram.

Pyrex® materials are capable of withstanding continuous heat up to 230°C(446°F) and intermittent heat up to 490°C(914°F). VYCOR® and QUARTZ® materials withstand continuous heat to 900°C (1652°F) and intermittent heat to 1200°C (2192°F). These glasses are available in either flat Rolled or Polished surfaces and in standard and special sizes. PYROCERAM®, for many years used in Corning's Cookware, is available in white sheets 48" x 60" x .200" thick. Clear translucent ceramic glass is available in sheets 31" x 62" x .200" thick. This material is used extensively in coal and other high heat environments as viewing portals. Ceramic glasses can withstand temperatures up to 700°C (1292°F).
