Precise dimensions and impressive properties

A wide range of dimensions in tubing and rods makes AR-GLAS® a popular and economical choice in many different fields. It offers very precise geometries and corrosion resistance, while its high thermal expansion coefficient means it can be fused with specific alloys or used in compression seals.

From the laboratory to the Christmas tree

The most common use of AR-GLAS® is in the manufacture of laboratory equipment such as test tubes, but it's also widely used for cosmetic containers and food packaging such as aroma vials. Thanks to its stable light transmission, it can also be used for solar collectors, and you can even find it in Christmas ornaments.
