The properties of DURAN® are specified in ISO 3585. In contrast to other borosilicate 3.3 glasses, DURAN® is notable for its highly consistent, technically reproducible quality.
Very high chemical resistance, a high usage temperature, minimal thermal expansion and the resulting high resistance to thermal shock are its most significant properties.
This optimum physical and chemical performance makes DURAN® the ideal material for use in the laboratory and for the manufacture of chemical apparatus used in large-scale industrial plant.
It is also widely used on an industrial scale in all other application areas in which extreme heat resistance, resistance to thermal shock, mechanical strength and exceptional chemical resistance are required.
