A graduated cylinder, measuring cylinder or mixing cylinder is used to measure the volume of a liquid. They have a narrow cylindrical shape and are more accurate and precise than laboratory flasks and beakers.
The cylinders offered are made out of borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass has excellent thermal properties both at high and low temperatures. Due to this, the glass may be heated without the danger of cracking. The maximum recommended temperature for borosilicate glassware is approximately 500 °C.
