Crystallization of Cordierite-Based Glass-Ceramics Adding with Fe2O3-TiO2


Article Preview

The effect of Fe2O3-TiO2 mixture additives on the crystallization behaviour of a parent glass with composition located in the primary field of cordierite within the MgO-Al2O3-SiO2 system has been examined. The crystallization behaviour of the glass was determined by differential thermal analysis (DTA) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The microstructure was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results show that additives of Fe2O3-TiO2 can lower the temperature of the crystallization peak (Tp) and promote crystallization of the parent glass. By controlled thermal treatment, the main crystal phase obtained was Fe2+substituted α-cordierite. The approach outlined in this paper to obtain heterogeneous ion substituted cordierite glass-ceramics is useful to develop infrared radiation material with good properties.
