Abstract:

The effectiveness of polymeric coatings acrylic, epoxy, and silicone in preventing stress corrosion was determined by measuring the loading rate sensitivity of bend strength for coated abraded and acid-polished soda-lime glass. The coatings were found to limit the availability of water to the glass surface and thereby cause an increase in the strength of abraded glass. The coatings also significantly improved the mechanical abrasion resistance of the acid-polished glass. However, the coatings did not eliminate the stress corrosion reaction between water and the glass surface and, hence, did not effect the sensitivity of glass strength to loading rate. Author
