High Quality Materials
Swift Glass partners with trusted manufacturers to source and supply the most trusted materials in the medical industry.
- Borosilicate — Maintaining clarity and strength at high temperatures, this material is coveted for its functionality and affordability. Swift Glass offers standard borosilicate and infrared reflecting borosilicate (IRR borosilicate), as well as a number of branded varieties from major manufacturers like Corning and Schott.
- Quartz and Fused Silica — Quartz’s purity offers superior optical and thermal properties, which lead to high working and melting temperatures. These characteristics are ideal for medical laboratory equipment and semiconductor fabrication. Industrial fused silica is a popular material choice for many sight glass applications. Swift Glass supplies a variety of recognized brands of both quartz and fused silica.
