My wife just bought some new pyrex baking pans , and the one we want to
use is just a hair too long to close the oven door on - this is a small oven
in a camper . My question is can I cut the little bit off so we can use it ,
or will it shatter like tempered glass ? I have both a wet saw for tile and
wet/dry diamond and masonry cutting discs for my angle grinder . I think the
best choice will be the tile saw ... but I've been wrong before .
It's tempered glass all right, just not _borosilicate_ glass of the
original Corning products. The trademark has been licensed to several
manufacturers, a few of the smaller of which still do use borosilicate
glass but the primary one doesn't. World Kitchen iirc is the spinoff of
Corning that uses a clear tempered soda-lime glass instead because it's
less expensive. It also isn't as heat-stress resistant and there've
been some complaints...
Yes you can cut it the same as regular glass.
When glasses are made or heated to the melting point, tempering is just
slow cooling to avoid built in stresses from cooling too fast. The
surface glass should not be much different than the interior.
