Borosilicate glass is a special type of glass that is made by combining boron trioxide and silica. It has a number of advantages over regular glass, including:
Thermal resistance Borosilicate glass has a very low coefficient of thermal expansion, which means it can withstand drastic temperature changes without cracking or breaking. This makes it ideal for use in laboratory equipment, cooking utensils, and other applications where heat resistance is important.
Durability Borosilicate glass is more durable than regular glass and is less likely to break or chip. This makes it a good choice for items that will be subjected to rough handling or frequent use.
Clarity Borosilicate glass is very clear and has a high level of transparency. This makes it a good choice for applications where optical clarity is important, such as in straws and other optical instruments.
Safety Borosilicate glass is considered to be a safer option than regular glass because it is less likely to shatter or break under stress. This makes it a good choice for items that will be used by children or in high-traffic areas.
Return on investment. Many hospitality establishments are using paper straws which are very expensive, get soggy and don't last long. Restaurant who invested in reusable straws are able to save expenses immediately.
Overall, borosilicate glass is a superior option to regular glass in many applications due to its thermal resistance, durability, chemical resistance, clarity, and safety.
After considering all factors, borosilicate straws are the the best solution for bars and restaurant on how to reduce the waste and unnecessary expenses.
The straws could be used repeatedly for many years, they are very easy to clean and sanitize and the transparency of the straws allows the customers to check their cleanliness every time.
