Educate yourself on glass ceramics technology

Saturday, June 7, 2014

“The Complete Book on Glass and Ceramics Technology” has published by Asia Pacific Business Press Inc. to inform people about the glass ceramics and technology to take benefit of the product.

Glass ceramic is the unbreakable glass, consisting of crystallinity between 0.5% and 99.5%. Vitrocerams, pyrocerams, vitroceramicos, sittals and vitroceramiques are some of the scientific names of glass ceramics. Polycrystalline materials are used to produce glass ceramics with the help of controlled crystallization of base glass. The minerals of glass ceramics share the properties of glass and ceramics, thus, it is known for its attributes, such as high strength, translucency, pigmentation, fluorescence, high chemical durability, stability, ion conductivity,   biocompatibility, high temperature stability, low or even negative thermal expansion, ferromagnetism, translucency or opacity, superconductivity, low dielectric constant and loss, break down voltage and so on. All these attributes are modified by controlling the base glass composition and by controlled heat treatment or crystallization of base glass. Glass-ceramics have a shapeless phase and one or more crystalline phases are produced by a "controlled crystallization". It is in contrast to a spontaneous crystallization, which is usually not wanted in glass manufacturing. It has the fabrication advantage of glass as well as special properties of ceramics. Controlled ceramization yields a cluster of materials with interesting and something surprising combo of properties.

The book is the detailed of version of topics related to glass ceramics. It deals with various topics and keeps people informed about the facts and data of the market, utility and benefits of glass ceramics. Structure and composition of glass, glass-ceramics and phase-separated glasses properties, types of glasses, chemical composition, silicate glasses, the phase diagram, boric oxide and borate glasses, germanium dioxide and germinate glasses, miscellaneous oxide glasses, theories of glass, modern glass working and many more major topics are covered in this book. Considering the status of market and potential of people the book is written under by the NIIR Board of Consultants & Engineers.

Today, the technology of glass ceramics is an extensive field involving a great variety of raw materials, manufacturing processes as well as products. It has the considerable diversity in the background of theoretical. Traditional glasses and ceramics manufacturing is based on the utilization of the most widely occurring natural raw materials. The book is an invaluable resource for entrepreneurs, technocrats, manufacturers of glass and ceramic products, research scholars, technical institutions etc. You can visit our website and go through our link,,f4,a,0,0,a/index.html  to gather the information on glass and ceramics.
