Glasses, glazes and glass-ceramics at the starting of the millennium


The latest research trends with respect to glasses (including porous materials), frits and glazes, glass-ceramics, and vitreous composites are reviewed.  The emphasis in the new millennium is on the development of large sintered tiles, intelligent windows, multilayered glazes, composite glazes, soldering glazes, the processing of glass-ceramics from waste material, fibre-reinforced glass-ceramic composites, and the shaping of glass-ceramics by injection moulding.  18 refs.
