BOROFLOAT Sight glass

BOROFLOAT® 33 & Sight Glass: A Union of Inspiration & Quality

The performance requirements for sight glasses, used to verify process conditions in piping, vessels, chemical reactors or other industrial equipment, are extremely high. Subjected to elevated temperatures, chemical attack and high pressure - specifying the right material is critical in order to ensure safety in even the harshest of environments. While many materials fail to address such challenging conditions, this is where BOROFLOAT® feels right at home.

BOROFLOAT Optical Mirrors

BOROFLOAT® 33 & Optical Mirrors: A Union of Inspiration & Quality

The performance requirements for optical mirrors are extremely rigorous as slight deviations can have significant impacts on the outcome of specific performance. Thermal stability is a must if mirrors are used in environments subjected to temperature changes. Excellent surface quality combined with exceptionally high transmission and reasonable cost are other attributes that engineers consider when specifying their material of choice. BOROFLOAT® glass meets such demanding requirements and has been used for sophisticated optics around the globe.

BOROFLOAT Functional Coating

BOROFLOAT® 33 & Functional Coatings: A Union of Inspiration & Quality

The performance requirements for optical filters and mirrors are highly dependent on the material’s ability to reflect, absorb, enhance or modify incoming light. This can be accomplished with bulk optical glass materials or through coatings that are applied to a pristine glass substrate. Coatings usually allow significantly more freedom for customized light management design options which can be developed even further when a flat glass material with outstanding optical, thermal, mechanical and chemical properties is used. BOROFLOAT® borosilicate glass is such a unique substrate and has hence become the material of choice for robust high-temperature resistant dichroic filters, hot and cold mirrors.
