Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks but this would be *Uhrenglas* in German. I gave two Swedish refs but I do not know whether these are correct in a chemical context. And w/o any refs on your part, I find CL 5 a bit steep.

Asker: Thanks. Seems to be correct in this context. But why "Urglas" in German?

agree  Cilian O'Tuama: Must be Uhrglas, IMO. For covering beakers, funnels etc.
