Study on the properties of Bi2O3-B2O3-BaO lead-free glass using in the electronic pastes



The Sb2O3 doping lead-free glass in Bi2O3-B2O3-BaO ternary system were prepared in the composition of several different subsystem, and the glass powder was produced through the process of water quenching. Glass transition temperatures (T g ), glass soften temperatures(T s ), the volume resistivity (ρ) in the temperature range of 80–200°C, and linear thermal coefficients of expansion in the temperatures range of 25–300°C (α25–300) were measured for subsystems along with the different ratio of Bi2O3, B2O3 and BaO. For these subsystems, T g ranged from 458 to 481°C, and T s ranged from 490 to 512°C, both decreasing with the increasing of Bi2O3/B2O3 ratio, and increasing with the increasing of BaO/B2O3 ratio. The measured α25–300 ranged from 65.3 to 76.3 × 10−7 K−1, with values increasing with increasing Bi2O3/B2O3 and BaO/B2O3 ratio. The volume resistivity remains at a high standards, which may caused by it’s non-alkali composition, and it fluctuated from 1013 to 1011 Ω cm with the temperature varied from 80–200°C. The structure of Bi2O3-B2O3-BaO ternary leadfree glass system was mearsured by FT-IR. The IR studies indicate that these glasses are made up of [BiO6], [BO3], and [BO4] basic structural units, and it appears that Ba2+ acts as a glass-modifier in this ternary system, but the Bi3+ has entered the glass network when it is in relative high content so as to change the α25–300, T s and T g .
