Boroux Original FAQ
Borosilicate glass is a higher quality glass that is stronger, more durable, and especially resistant to cracking and thermal shock.
While not completely unbreakable, it is more durable than regular glass. The bottom of the Boroux bottle is roughly 300% thicker than competitor bottles to help prevent breakage. When broken, borosilicate glass tends to crack into large pieces rather than shattering (it will snap rather than splinter).
Borosilicate glass has a wide range of uses. It is commonly used in cookware and lab equipment, but is also used in high quality products like optic lenses, implantable medical devices, and equipment used in space exploration. It is also a popular medium among artists such as glass sculptors.
While Borosilicate glass is resistant to temperature change (because it does not expand like ordinary glass) we only recommend using the Boroux bottles for cold beverages.

The lid is made from high grade 304 stainless steel.
When installing the seal, be sure that the ridges are facing away from the lid. The rigid side of the steel should be touching the glass bottle when you attach the lid.
