Kelaniya University’s Chemistry Department provides a unique service to government and the private sector by undertaking the manufacture and repair of scientific and industrial glassware, at its Glass Blowing Centre.

The Centre which has all the facilities including two foreign-trained glass blowers has successfully worked towards reducing the cost of imports of scientific and industrial glassware and recovering damaged glassware.

Coordinator of the Glass Blowing Centre, Professor Chandima Jayasuriya said that Sri Lanka spends an enormous amount of foreign exchange yearly for the purchase of scientific and industrial glassware. There is no other facility in the country to undertake the repair of such glass equipment or to manufacture glassware for specific needs of industry and research institutes.
