The aim of this book is to show the very many potential uses of metals in glassmaking, and give a comprehensive review of the well-known and generally valid principles of application; a wealth of graphs, tables, figures, evaluations of structures and examples of practical applications are provided. The main point is to demonstrate the temperature dependence of the changes of physical and mechanical properties of metals, since this behaviour appears to be of paramount significance where highly accurate thermo-technical calculations are made in machinery and mould design. The authors have highlighted those metals and alloys that have not yet been examined in great detail, such as platinum and platinum metals, high-temperature metals of molybdenum, tin and its oxides, and the metallic and oxide films deposited on glasses, metals and ceramics, together with methods of deposition.
In the initial parts of this book, special attention is given to the corrosion behaviour of metals and alloys and to the technically significant physical and temperature-dependent mechanical properties of metals under prolonged loads when creep should be expected to set in. These very important aspects are treated in considerable detail and additional information on individual metals is provided in the respective sections. Cast material
