What Is Pyroceram Glass?
Pyroceram (or ceramic glass) is a heat resistant glass-ceramic material. It was developed by Corning Glass in 1959 and was first used for cook and bake ware. It has since become widely used for fireplace or stove doors that emit extremely high temperatures (over 1000 degrees F). Pyroceram has the unique advantage of possessing the sealing properties of glass and the incredible strength of ceramic.
Pyroceram is a transparent product that transmits light and gives off an inviting ambiance with its amber tint. It is made from magnesium aluminosilicate and titania. It is machined and etched to ensure smooth surfaces throughout. Pyroceram goes through intense quality assurance tests and must pass ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards, such as compression-stress tolerance, tensile strength, fracture resistance, shear-tolerance, and elasticity assessments.
Because of its unsurpassed stability, pyroceram is also used for the construction of aircraft missile nosecones, microwave ovens, and chemistry/biology lab instruments in addition to glass doors for your heating application.
