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