Thermal Stability vs. Crystallization of the Lithiumsilicate Glasses with Addition Zirconium Dioxide and Titanium Dioxide
The glasses with composition of Li2O . 2 SiO2 . n ZrO2 . n TiO2 (where n = 0; 0.015; 0.031; 0.050; 0.075; 0.1; 0.15; 0.2) were prepared and the relationship between structural and selected parameters of thermal stability vs. crystallization has been studied by differential thermal analysis. Structural analysis was provided by X–ray diffraction. The order of thermal stability vs. crystallization representing of activation energy of studied glass systems which increase with higher addition both oxides. The same order was obtained from the values of XRD. On the comparison the glasses with zero addition titanium dioxide their activation energy was much higher.
