BOROSILICATE

H-PZ33 Low Expansion Glass

H-PZ33 is a low expansion borosilicate glass characterized by high light transmittance, excellent thermal stability, excellent mechanical hardness, and excellent chemical durability. H-PZ33 has become the glass of choice for MR11 reflectors, MR16 reflectors, UHP lamps, parabolic aluminized reflectors, telescope mirrors, and any application where a low coefficient of thermal expansion is called for.
