Sample text

Glass can be broken at a specified location by creating a flaw where the break is desired and then applying stress (tension) to that flaw. However, an improperly made flaw can easily result in a flaw of undesirable quality. For example, an inexperienced flat glass cutter will take a wheeled glass knife, aggressively bear down on the glass, and push the cutter back and forth several times. While a single scratch could have broken cleanly and easily, the repeated scratches create a heavy, round bottom groove with many side fissures.

However, careless placement of boiling chips in a container can severely reduce the life span of the container. Never dump boiling chips into an empty glass container. Boiling chips have sharp edges that can scratch glass. By placing your liquid solution into the container before introducing boiling chips, you prevent the boiling chips from a free fall landing on the bottom of the glass. , flaws) that boiling chips could otherwise inflict on the surface of the glass. Liquid will not provide adequate lubrication or protection against the scraping of a glass rod across the bottom of a glass container.

These borosilicate glasses are more chemically inert than common laboratory borosilicate glass. Their different composition makes them unable to be fused directly to common laboratory borosilicate glass; therefore, they require use of what is called grading glass (see Sec. 6) between this glass and other borosilicate glasses. One special category of hard glasses is the aluminosilicate glasses. They are made by the addition of alumina (aluminum oxide) to the glass mix. Aluminosilicate glasses are used in high temperature lamps because they maintain higher viscosities at higher temperatures.
