Development of Foam Glass as a New Insulating Building Material
AbstractUniform quality of foam glass has been developed from local waste soda-lime-silica glass powder containing SO3 contents about 0.3% by mixing various foaming agent such as carbon powder, graphite, cellulose material or saw dust and firing the mixture at about 700 - 900oC. A study of important properties like density, thermal conductivity, thermal expansion and moisture has proved it to be good insulating building material. Useful applications in other fields have also been suggested.
