1. Primary Ingredients of food grade glass products

Food-grade glass products use as their core raw materials high-purity quartz sand, borax, boric acid, barium carbonate, limestone and other inorganic minerals that undergo high temperature melting processes such as shaping and annealing to become glass products we're familiar with today. Quartz sand is one of the key components in glass, with purity and quality directly impacting performance and quality in finished goods.

2. Properties of Food-grade glass raw materials

Pure: For safety and non-toxicity reasons, food-grade glass raw materials must meet high purity requirements in order to guarantee safe products made from glass. This ensures their long-term viability in the market place.

Heat Resistance: Food-grade glass raw materials feature excellent heat resistance and can withstand temperatures without cracking, making them suitable for use in microwave ovens and ovens for heating and baking food.

Corrosion resistance: Food-grade glass raw materials provide excellent corrosion resistance against acids, alkalis, grease and other substances, thus guaranteeing their stability and safety during use.
