The microstructure of foam-glass-crystalline materials has been investigated using the energy-dispersive X-ray analysis, Auger electron and infrared spectroscopy, high-resolution scanning electron microscopy, and X-ray diffraction analysis. The strength of the materials is determined and proves to be higher than that for the foam glass prepared from a glass cullet. This is a consequence of the structural effect associated with the formation of nanostructural units in the glassy matrix.
