Glass-ceramic materials share many properties with both glass and more traditional crystalline ceramics. This new edition examines the various types of glass-ceramic materials, the methods of their development, and their countless applications. With expanded sections on biomaterials and highly bioactive products (i.e., Bioglass and related glass ceramics), as well as the newest mechanisms for the development of dental ceramics and theories on the development of nano-scaled glass-ceramics, here is a must-have guide for ceramic and materials engineers, managers, and designers in the ceramic and glass industry.

The technology of glass ceramics are now a day wide field involving a great variety of raw materials, manufacturing processes, as well as products, and of considerable diversity in theoretical background. The manufacture of traditional glasses and ceramics is based on the utilization of the most widely occurring natural raw materials. Glass is an inorganic product that is typically produced by melting a mixture of silica, soda and calcium compound with the desired metallic oxides that serve as colouring agents. The glass industry covers products such as silicate glasses, phosphate glasses, germanate glasses, halide glasses, nitrate glasses etc. Glass products are used widely in households, construction, laboratories and consumer items such as bangles, beads, pearls, etc. A ceramic is an inorganic, nonmetallic solid prepared by the action of heat and subsequent cooling. Ceramic materials may have a crystalline or partly crystalline structure, or may be amorphous (e.g., a glass). Because most common ceramics are crystalline, the definition of ceramic is often restricted to inorganic crystalline materials, as opposed to the noncrystalline glasses. Commercial application of glass ceramics are dinnerware, fine mesh screens, cookware, burner covers, semiconductor doping sources etc. The domestic glass industry is facing increasing competition in the global, as well as domestic markets. State of the art technology in manufacturing is becoming increasingly important in the industry. Modern technology and operations are replacing traditional methodologies in fibre glass composites. The demand for ceramic and glass products is growing globally with over 90 percent of the total demand for advanced ceramic materials coming from electronic goods and allied industries, thanks to the product ability to withstand extreme environmental conditions. This book majorly deals with types of glasses, silicate glasses, boric oxide and borate glasses, phosphorus pentoxide and phosphate glasses, germanium dioxide and germanate glasses, titanate glasses, nitrate glasses, glasses based on water, halide glasses, modern glass working, monax and pyrex glass, electric welding, photo electric cells, glassy metals, analysis of glass, glass ceramics, ceramics as electrical materials, analysis of ceramics etc. The technology of glass ceramics are now a day wide field involving a great variety of raw materials, manufacturing processes, as well as products, and of considerable diversity in theoretical background. The manufacture of traditional glasses and ceramics is based on the utilization of the most widely occurring natural raw materials. The efforts have been made to provide maximum and latest information about processing of glass and ceramics and their products in this book. This book is an invaluable resource for entrepreneurs, technocrats, manufacturers of glass and ceramic products, research scholars, technical institutions etc.

Glass-ceramic materials are new, solid substances that are especially useful because of their exceptional technical parameters, including a wide range of unusual combinations of properties. The characteristics of glass-ceramic materials basically depend on the properties of the finely separated crystalline phase and the residual glass phase which make up the glass-ceramic material. The kind of crystalline phase and thus also the final properties of the glass-ceramic material can be controlled by the initial glass composition and by its heat treatment. In this way, an almost unlimited number of types of glass-ceramic material can be prepared with various combinations of properties, many of which are useful in practice. The production of glass-ceramic materials is becoming a new field of material technology, based on special manufacturing processes, especially controlled crystallization of glasses based on theoretical knowledge, primarily in the field of phase transformation in condensed systems and the physics of solid substances.

An Introduction to Glass Science and Technology presents the fundamental topics in glass science and technology including glass formation, crystallisation and phase separation. A detailed discussion of glass structure models with emphasis on the oxygen balance model is also presented. This expanded second edition also includes new chapters on the compositions and properties of commercial glasses and thermal analysis of glasses and melts. Exercises are included at the end of the chapters. This introductory text is ideal for undergraduates in materials science, ceramics or inorganic chemistry. It will also be useful to the engineer or scientist seeking basic knowledge of the formation, properties and production of glass.

This is the only global roadmap that identifies the technical and manufacturing challenges associated with the development and expansion of commercial markets for ceramics and glass. Featuring presentations by industry leaders at the 1st International Congress on Ceramics (ICC) held in 2006, it suggests positive, proactive ways to address these challenges. The ICC Global Roadmap contains the following content: 1) Summary papers prepared by the invited speakers before the meeting 2) A detailed account of the presentation of each invited speaker written by an editor who attends the presentation 3) A summary account and future recommendations for the industry on each topic covered written by the board and the president of this meeting, Dr. Stephen Freiman (National Institutes of Standards and Technology) 4) The CDRom accompanying the book contains all of the above as well as pdfs of the presentations for non-invited speakers, including posters presented and discussed.
