There are many reasons why glass is such a versatile component; it's transparency, smooth surfaces, resistance to thermal shock, and high resistance to corrosion and chemicals. In the right hands it can even be worked to tolerances of a few microns - the same as metal.

Skilled Craftsmen - Over 30 Years Experience

At HGL Hampshire Glassware, we know that it takes an exceptional skill and years of training to work glass to this accuracy. That's why all our glassblowers are trained in-house for at least 7 years with a further 5 years practical experience. Only then are they sufficiently skilled to tackle the most complex of jobs as a senior glassblower. This single minded excellence over the last 30 years has helped us to become one of the largest, most experienced and highly skilled specialist scientific glass blowing operations in the UK.
