DURAN® borosilicate glass is highly resistant to water, neutral and acid solutions, concentrated acids and acid mixtures, and to chlorine, bromine, iodine and organic substances. Its chemical resistance is superior to that of most metals and other materials, even during prolonged periods of exposure and at temperatures.
Kartell, founded in 1949, was one of the first companies in Europe to begin transforming plastic materials and using them to create and produce designer furniture, furnishing objects and household accessories. In the last 60 years Kartell’s main objective has been to take the technological and industrial aspects of plastic - a consideration necessary in today’s economic and social environment - and combine them with a cultural and aesthetic approach. In this sense, Kartell has emerged as a true innovator amongst Italian and international companies. For this reason it is necessary to consider important factors such as chemical concentration, contact time, ageing effects, thermal stress, aggressiveness of detergents, UV radiation exposure, sterilisation and other environmental effects. It is this commitment to quality that led to Kartell being granted ISO 9001 certification in 1996, and will continue to be its driving force into the future
