Synthesis and Properties of Silicon-Carbide-Modified Porous Glass Composite

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The synthesis and properties of a porous glass composite obtained, based on cullet powder using aluminum powder and liquid glass, at temperatures not exceeding 100°C are discussed. It is shown that silicon carbide or a mixture of silicon carbide with gallium arsenide, which is a product of grinding in the semiconductor industry, can be used as a composition modifier. It is shown that porous glass composite with density not exceeding 600 kg/m3 and strength in compression not less than 1.7 MPa can be obtained by introducing 32% waste into the composition. The introduction of modifiers promotes better foaming and positively impacts the structural quality factor of the material. The results of these studies expand the range of application and the raw material base for the production of porous glass composites.
