Researchers and chemists, who often challenge reusable laboratory glassware with aggressive chemicals and rough handling, now have the means to enjoy the unique properties that glass offers with enhanced safety. Kimble Chase, the largest manufacturer of laboratory glassware products in the world, produces heavy-duty KIMAX® borosilicate glassware, which offers maximum mechanical strength and thermal shock resistance.
The Kimble Chase selection of heavy-duty glassware includes beakers, bottles, centrifuge tubes, and flasks. KIMAX® Heavy-Duty Low Form Beakers offer outstanding performance on hot plates and resist mechanical and thermal shock. KIMAX® Heavy-Duty Wide-Mouth Volumetric Flasks exhibit superior strength and durability, have wide-mouth neck openings for easier pipet access, large volume markings and flat interior bottoms for stirring with standard stir bars. Heavy-Duty Volumetric Flasks are also available using KIMAX® processed with RAY-SORB® for light-sensitive compounds. For improved safety in vacuum filtration applications, KIMAX® Heavy-Wall Filter Flasks safely hold 1 atmosphere (29 inches of mercury) of vacuum, and are available in sizes from 25 mL to 4000 mL.
Often used in clinical and microbiological laboratory applications, KIMAX® Heavy-Duty Screw Thread Centrifuge Tubes are made using a heavier wall tubing to withstand high centrifuge speeds and are offered with tapered or round bottoms. For long-lasting durability in pharmaceutical applications, the KIMAX® Heavy-Duty Solution Bottle (Carboy) has a 5 gallon capacity and can be supplied with a two or three-port, platinum cured stopper assembly and sanitary KYNAR® clamp for sterile transfer with no extractables.
KIMAX® Heavy Duty Laboratory Glassware is available worldwide from multiple manufacturing facilities located in the US, Europe and Asia.
