Tips For Safely Handling Lab Glassware

Posted by Admin on November, 13, 2013

Glass is a versatile material that can be used for making a wide range of objects such as decorative pieces, windows, kitchen ware and laboratory ware. Talking specifically about Lab Glassware, it is extensively used in scientific laboratories due to its durability and robustness. Laboratory Glassware is different from other types of glassware used for the purpose of cooking or serving food. It is specially designed to store chemicals and highly reactive agents. In spite of being robustly designed, Lab Glassware is as sensitive as the other glass objects are. Following are few tips that can be helpful for safely handling Lab Glassware:

  • The glassware slips easily when its surface is wet. Thus, while washing delicate Lab Glassware you must be extremely careful because most of the accidental breakage occurs while washing.
  • Before using the Laboratory Glassware, examine it very carefully for any chipping or crack. This is extremely important because the glassware may break or rupture while working and may severely hurt you or people around you.
  • Lab Glassware particularly needs to be safely handled while heating. The reason behind it is that glass heats up quickly and can severely burn your skin if mishandled.
  • Check you Lab Glassware regularly for stressed points. This unevenness arises due to the unequal heating of glassware. Such points are prone to easily break-off when the glassware is heated or used for storing chemicals.

Keep in mind the above-mentioned tips so as to ensure that the Laboratory Glassware lasts long. Besides, be careful enough to buy the glassware from reliable sources in the first place.
