Borosilicate is a heat resistant glass used in many high heat applications, including high temperature optics, telescope mirrors, nuclear waste containment, and laboratory glassware. It is used for these applications due to the fact that it resists thermal expansion very well, and is thus resistant to thermal shock. Although Pyrex is actually a brand name, it is often considered synonymous to Borosilicate.
