One of the new, prospective raw materials for synthesizing ceramics for various applications is natural mineral diopside. An addition of diopside markedly increases the mechanical strength, and improves the dielectric and other properties of the products. Interest is therefore attached to investigations of the way the additive acts. The additive consisted of Slyudyansk diopside in amounts of (on 100%), 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25%. An increase in the content of diopside leads to a strengthening of the glass structure (KMS), an increase in its density, a reduction in the maximum temperature at which the glass fuses, and hence a reduction in the maximum firing temperature of the ceramic.
