1) High Borosilicate Glass

When selecting Glass Drinking Cups, you should choose heat-resistant glass products with high transparency. Among them, high borosilicate glass must be the first choice. It is a highly heat-resistant glass material with excellent heat resistance and chemical stability. Its advantage is that it can withstand temperature changes of sudden cooling and heating, and is suitable for making tableware and hot water kettles. Moreover, the light transmittance of high borosilicate glass is good, the thickness is uniform, and the sound is crisp. However, the price of borosilicate glass is high, the production process is complicated, and the market share is not high.

2) Soda-Lime Glass

The Glass Drinking Cups material has high heat resistance and chemical stability, so it is widely used in making tableware and wine glasses. However, due to its large coefficient of thermal expansion, cracking may occur when the temperature changes. When using soda-lime glass, pay attention to the temperature difference. Do not exceed 50°C generally. Its price is relatively low and we accept wholesale and customization, so it has a high market share.

Lead glass has a unique light transmittance and refractive index. It is often used to make optical instruments and jewelry. However, because lead glass contains the heavy metal lead, which can cause harm to the human body when used for a long time, it is not recommended for use as food containers.

Borosilicate glass has the advantages of heat or cold resistance and chemical corrosion resistance, so it is widely used in making laboratory equipment and kitchen supplies such as milk bottles and beakers. In addition, it also has good light transmittance and refractive properties, so it is often used to make optical instruments and jewelry.

How To Choose Glass Material

The material of the glass should be pure, and when boiling water is poured into it, there should be no leakage, cracks, breakage, or other defects that would affect its use. If the glass material is impure, there are lines, bubbles, or sand on the glass drinkware. Since sand and glass have different compositions and expansion coefficients, a slight collision will separate them from the glass body, causing the glass to crack. Sometimes, although there is no collision, the sand will detach from the glass body due to temperature changes, causing the glass to burst automatically.
