UV Resistance Of High Borosilicate Glass


If you haven't looked into the uses of  high borosilicate glass, it might be time to check it out. This unique type of glass has many applications in architecture, product design, art and manufacturing, and can be easily shaped into almost any form.

But the real magic of this material is when it is combined with ultraviolet light (UV). High borosilicate glass tubes are common components in UV lamps. Due to its high transparency, this form of glass allows a large UV escape while effectively shielding the bulb. That's why it's often used in UV lamps for disinfecting water.

On the other hand, glass tubes in the form of borosilicate can also be used to block UV rays. Specially engineered variants with specific colors resist UV light, allowing sensitive materials like pharmaceuticals to avoid decay.
