Borosil Vision Glass

The most familiar type of glass, used for centuries in windows and drinking vessels, is soda-lime glass, composed of about 75% silica (SiO2) plus Na2O, CaO, and several minor additives. Often, the term glass is used in a restricted sense to refer to this specific use.

The history of creating glass can be traced back to 3500 BCE in Mesopotamia. The term glass developed in the late Roman Empire. It was in the Roman glassmaking center at Trier, now in modern Germany, that the late-Latin term glesum originated, probably from a Germanic word for a transparent, lustrous substance.

Borosil's revolutionary Vision Glasses have stood the test of time. Unchanged since 1962, the Vision Glass is the single largest selling glass in the country today. Exciting new cut glass designs keep the look contemporary and fresh, while retaining the iconic essence of the Vision Glass. Part of our flame proof range, these glasses can also be used directly over the stove.
