Corning Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of PYREX

100 years of scientific breakthroughs….

Corning's invention of PYREX set a global standard for laboratory glassware that continues to be the scientists' choice a century later. Known for its low coefficient of expansion and resistance to heat and cold, PYREX replaced soda lime glassware in most laboratory applications because of its thermal resistance and chemical inertness. In it's 100 year history PYREX has played an important role in many scientific breakthroughs and advancements in medicine.
