Science for Glass Production


It is shown that OH groups affect the technological and physical-chemical properties of glass. The importance of and need for research in this direction are substantiated by the facts that new artificial and natural raw materials are now being used and that adding oxygen to burn fuel changes the composition of the atmosphere in the glassmaking furnace.
