What type of glass is used for glass blowing?


Updated: 6th October 2019

Soda-lime is the most widely used type of glass. It is standard for windowpanes and glass containers, such as bottles and jars. Borosilicate is more of a specialty glass. It's used extensively in the glass blowing process known as lamp working and has a higher melting point than soda-lime glass.
