IRD is an Official Borofloat® Distributor

February 08, 2020

As an official Borofloat® distributor, IRD Glass can meet your float glass needs quickly and efficiently. 

 

One of the most common Borofloat materials we work with is Borofloat 33, a versatile borosilicate glass with excellent light transmission, thermal stability and chemical resistance:

 

  • Its excellent transmission makes it an obvious choice for optical windows, filters, and mirrors. Optical coatings can be applied to enhance the transmission of certain light wavelengths. 

 

  • With its excellent impact resistance, Borofloat 33 is an excellent material for bulletproof glass systems and debris shields. 

 

  • Its chemical resistance is even better than most metals (it can sustain long-term use at temperatures above  100°C), making Borofloat 33 the material of choice for chemically resistant viewports in medical and industrial settings

 

  • Thanks to its thermal stability, Borofloat 33 has become one of the most important materials in the electronics and semiconductor industry.
