Complex studies of glass formation were conducted and the properties of glasses in the system of materials quartz sand – colemanite – soda determined. It is established that the multicomponent raw-material colemanite can be used in the production of different types of borosilicate glass and glass articles with different compositions. An assessment of the prospects and efficacy of its use is given.
