1. Soda-lime glass
Daily use glasses, bowls, etc. are all made of this material, which is characterized by small rapid temperature differences. For example, if boiling water is poured into a glass just taken out of the refrigerator compartment, it is likely to burst. In addition, it is not recommended to heat soda-lime glass products in a microwave oven, because there are also certain safety risks.
2. Borosilicate glass
This material is heat-resistant glass, and glass crisper sets commonly found in the market are made of it. It is characterized by good chemical stability, high strength, and sudden temperature difference greater than 110°C. In addition, this type of glass has a good heat resistance and can be safely heated in a microwave or electric oven. And this glass material is generally also suitable for candle cups.
This kind of material is also called super heat-resistant glass, and the glass pots that are very popular on the market are made of this material. It is characterized by particularly good heat resistance, with a sudden temperature difference of 400°C.
4. Lead crystal glass
It is commonly known as crystal glass, which is generally used to make goblets. It is characterized by good refraction, good hand feeling, and a clear and pleasant sound when tapped.
5. Tempered glass
This material is made of ordinary glass through physical tempering. Compared with ordinary glass, its impact resistance and heat resistance are greatly enhanced, and the broken pieces have no sharp corners.
