A Practical Method for Production of Foamed Glass
Engineering and Technology Journal,
2009, Volume 27, Issue 13, Pages 2489-2495
AbstractA two stage preparation method of foamed glass is described here aiming
to achieve reproducibility and convenience. Fritting of the solid components assembles the first stage; where firing a mix of the frit, foaming agents and the liquid component gather the second stage. Almost uniform cellular structure of the foamed glass is achieved at elatively low firing temperature of the mix (820°C for 10 min). The cellular structure is enclosed with a shell of continuous surface. Physical properties (density, porosity and water absorption) are measured
for the product along with the mechanical properties that concerns production of building blocks, namely impact and compression strength.
The flexibility of the presented two stage preparation method simplifies
future attempts to modify its properties to adapt particular applications.
