Pyrex (trademarked as PYREX and pyrex) is a brand introduced by Corning Inc. in 1915 for a line of clear, low-thermal-expansion borosilicate glass used for laboratory glassware and kitchenware. It was later expanded to include ware products made of soda-lime glass.
In 1998, the products division of Corning Inc. responsible for the development of PYREX spun off from its parent company as Corning Consumer Products Company, subsequently renamed Corelle Brands. Corning Inc. no longer manufactures or markets consumer products, only industrial ones.
Corelle Brands continues to license the pyrex (all lowercase) trademark for their tempered soda-lime glass line of kitchenware products sold in the United States, South America, and Asia. In Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, the PYREX (all uppercase) trademark is licensed by International Cookware for their borosilicate glass products.
The brand has also produced lines of non-glass kitchen utensils and cookware in various regions.
