    Pyrex Glass vs. Gorilla Glass?



    Are one of these glass makers actually have better quality glass than the other or pros and cons with one another? or They are just as good

    Pyrex it a type of glass, specifically borosillicate (sp?) and Gorilla is a company name, though they may use soda-lime glass. Both are inert and should hold up equally as jewelry, pryrex may be slightly more impact resistant, though not necesarily all of the time.

    well besides the durablit, is there a difference in the material such as "pyrex heals better than the gg plugs" or they are pretty much the same? </p>

    They are both basically the same, I think they have different melting points, but I think you'd have more issues than glass melting in your lobes if you're near anything that hot. </p>

    Soda lime glass comes in more colors, and is a softer glass. Pyrex has boron added, so colors are less likely to leech, because it bonds in a stronger way to the metal molecules that make it pretty colored. This is usually never a big issue with good quality jewelry though. It is also more durable and less likely to scratch. Both can be autoclaved and are safe for healing piercings.</p>

    Gorilla glass makes lovely jewelry, and I believe they use both pyrex and soda lime. </p>

    I'm not sure if it's this way for everyone, but GG plugs make my ears weepy, and make my conches and nostrils crust like hell. I have no problems with GWS

    Borosilicate glass does that to my ears if I wear it for too long, never has with pyrex though. I change my plugs a lot usually, but my septum hates it and adores pyrex. </p>
