Development of Porous Material with High Young’s Modulus and Low Thermal Expansion Coefficient in SiC-Vitrified Bonding Material-LiAlSiO4 System
Machines for manufacturing large scale flat displays are enlarging as the size of glasses increases. This work develops porous materials with a low thermal expansion coefficient and a high Young’s modulus. SiC and LiAlSiO4 were used for a positive and a negative thermal expansion materials, respectively. Compositions of powders for porous materials were determined to obtain a desirable Young’s modulus and thermal expansion coefficient by using SiC-VBM-LiAlSiO4 phase diagram at 20 % of porosity. The empirical values of Young’s modulus and a thermal expansion coefficient are close to the theoretical values by using the diagram. Fabricated porous material had high enough Young’s modulus of 87 GPa, and low enough thermal expansion coefficient of 2 x 10-6 K-1 at temperatures ranging from -17 °C to 190 °C with 22 % of porosity.
