Making foam glass based on natural and technogenic aluminosilicates

  • V. A. Lotov

It is shown that aluminosilicate rocks and materials can be used to make glass suitable for making foam glass. Characteristic moduli are proposed for evaluating the suitability of aluminosilicate materials for glassmaking and for the glass obtained. The batch compositions for making glass and foam glass are presented.
