The rapid developments in glassmaking over the past decades have necessitated the production of increasing quantities of materials resistant to high temperatures, and to gases and molten glasses, usually aggressive by nature. Appropriate physical and mechanical properties are also essential. General metals and their alloys, as well as non-ferrous and noble metals and their oxides, carbides, borides, nitrides, or non-traditional mixtures of metals and ceramics - the cermets, graphites and composite materials - can perform satisfactorily in most cases. However, correct matching of metal and glass is vital. The aim of this book is to show the potential uses of metals in glassmaking, and to give a comprehensive review of the well-known and generally valid principles of application. Graphs, tables, figures, evaluations of structures and examples of practical applications are provided. The main point is to demonstrate the temperature dependence of the changes of physical and mechanical properties of metals, since this behaviour appears to be of paramount significance where highly accurate thermo-technical calculations are made in machinery and mould design. The authors have highlighted those metals and alloys that have not yet been examined in great detail, such as platinum and platinum metals, high-temperature metals of molybdenum, tin and its oxides, and the metallic and oxide films deposited on glasses, metals and ceramics, together with methods of deposition. In the initial parts of this book, special attention is given to the corrosion behaviour of metals and alloys and to the technically significant physical and temperature-dependent mechanical properties of metals under prolonged loads when creep should be expected to set in. These aspects are treated in considerable detail and additional information on individual metals is provided in the respective sections. Cast materials and formed steel - the group of materials employed most extensively - have been given due coverage in view of their significance and wide scope of application. Based on 30 years of research activity in the manufacturing of optical and semi-optical glass, machine and manual moulding and fanning, and on experimental work and practice, this work should be of use to technologists, designers, design engineers and researchers in glassmaking.
