One exception is hydrofluoric acid.They are also used is high-purity processes where cleanliness is very important. Using glass-lined equipment help eliminate the possibility of metal contamination.A third application is in polymerization. Metallic vessels sometimes tend to allow the polymer to stick to the walls of the vessels while glass-lined vessels have good anti-stick properties.
