The trademark name for a borosilicate glass that was developed in 1918 for railroad lanterns. It is best known as a line of bakeware that withstands both temperature extremes and rapid changes of temperature that would shatter ordinary glassware.

It also resists chemicals and electricity, and has interesting optical properties, and for these reasons is used in optical applications, laboratory ware, body piercings, and bongs.
