WTB 6x6 borosilicate (heat resistant) glass :) I would like a thickness of ~3mm.

The mirror tile is regular glass, not borosilicate. IMHO the mirror looks cool, but the reflective layer is way to small to have any heat-spreading effect. If you're near an Ikea and the glass is 3mm ignore the rest of this and go get some.

I don't want to get into the middle of the borosilicate vs regular glass wars, but both work fine. Borosilicate will contribute to the overall economy by pumping a bit more money into the glass manufacturer, distributor, retailer, etc. but won't make your prints any better.

Or you could just go to your local glass shop and have them cut a stock size of double strength (not sure what they call it on your side of the pond) glass into as many 6x6 pieces as will fit; ask what they'd charge to bevel the edges just enough so they won't be finger slicers, or consider some blue tape around the edges. This way you won't cry as much as when you drop the expensive borosilicate glass on the floor, you'll have multiple pieces to swap between as well as being able to hairspray (abs juice, glue stick, floor finish, kapt(a/o)n or blue tape, etc.) while you're printing away. A piece of the money stays locally, and you can spend the difference on a present for your significant other. I use double strength because the single has just a bit of flex. Never had one break on the printer from heat, only from fumble-fingered hard surface encounters or the time I dropped a screwdriver on it...
