Nanoparticles of silicon carbide when added to ordinary glass enhance its crystalline structure and make it stronger than traditional tempered glass five times.
The technology of tempering glass with nanoparticles of silicon carbide:
Nanoparticles of silicon carbide when added to conventional glass enhance its crystalline structure and prevent the propagation of cracks. With the result that such glass becomes stronger than traditional tempered glass five times.
The addition of nanoparticles in the glass does not require change of technology of production of glass and its hardening. Nanoparticles of silicon carbide added to the molten glass at a temperature of about 1650 °C and is evenly distributed throughout the molten mass. During the solidification of glass nanoparticles change crystal structure glass. This glass upon impact absorbs impact energy and is able to withstand much bongreater energy of destruction than ordinary tempered glass. If all the same from shock and cracks, then they branch out to a tiny network, not over the entire surface of the glass.
