AN703 – Thermal stability and the mechanism of crystallization in sintered glass-ceramics from residual E-glass fibres Private content

Glass-ceramics (wollastonite–plagioclaseglass-ceramics in this case) are materials produced from parent waste glasses by controlled crystallization at higher temperatures, which results in a growth of one or more crystalline phases within the vitreous mass. The most advantageous properties of those type of materials are high flexural strength (100– 120 MPa), high resistance to weathering and a zero water absorption rate.
The evolution of the crystalline phases and microstructures during the crystallization process of a glass derived from FGRP (Fibreglass Reinforced Plastics) wastes is analyzed.
