Glass quality and adhesion evaluation in glass fiber production
- 65 Downloads
The processes occurring during the production of glass fiber from glass with different chemical composition and the influence of hydrostatic forces, surface tension, and internal friction on the formation process are examined. The critical fiber formation temperature under conditions where the viscosity and surface tension of the molten glass are of different magnitude is determined. Anew approach to evaluating the capability of glass to form glass fiber according to the ratio of the surface tension to the viscosity is proposed. A computational method of evaluating the formation rate of glass fiber with different diameters is given for the example of E glass. Some mechanisms of adhesion of organic polymers and protein molecules to a glass surface are presented.
