Influences of Fe2O3 Doping on the Crystallization of SiO2-Al2O3-MgO-K2O-ZrO2-F Glass-Ceramics
The influences of Fe2O3 doping on crystallization characteristics and microstructural morphology in the SiO2-Al2O3-MgO-K2O-ZrO2-F glass were investigated by using differential scanning calorimeter, X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy techniques. The results indicate that the addtions of Fe2O3 shift the crystallization peaks to higher temperatures and the crystallization peaks increases in magnitude and the gap values between two crystallization peak temperatures boarden with the increment of Fe2O3 contents.The star-shaped crystals of cordietite by dendritic-manner growths are homogeneously precipitated in the rusidual glass. The mica phases, which are precipitated at interdendritic cordietite phases and formed the plate shapes at the elevated temperatures. The mica crystals grow at the expense of cordietite phases and finally form the composites of mica/cordietite uniformly distributed.
