Borosilicate Glass Used in Implated Medical Devices

Boroslicate can be found in the following:

  • Prosthetic eyes
  • Artificial hip joints
  • bone cements
  • dental composite materials
  • breast implants

Borosilicate Glass Wafers Used In Electronics

Borosilicate in wafer form with, for example a spec of 100mm 500um DSP are used for bonding silicon and other substrates in the semiconductor industry to manufacture Micro Electro Mechanical Systems or MEMS.

Borosilicate Glass Wafers Used In Lighting

The best flashlights use borosilicate glass instead of lower quality plastics for the lens for better light transmission. Other lighting applications include high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps.

Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) use 1mm thick glass.

Borosilicate Glass Wafers Used In Lighting

Space applications include reflecting telescopes for its resistance to thermal shock. This allows for precise mirror surfaces that won't distort under extreme temperature variations.
