And ceramics, Glass has a deep blood relationship, is soft ceramics, is soft glass! Chemical performance is stable, not with strong alkali, strong acid outside of any material reaction. Properties soft, insulated, insulation, temperature-40 degrees to 230 degrees, good maintenance, protection performance is good. The plasticity is strong, has the very broad creation space. The recycling of waste products is high, abandoned in the natural environment also does not release toxic substances, do not cause harm to the environment.
