Abstract:

The possibility of synthesis of glass-ceramic materials from Belka deposit carbonate phosphorites of Gornoy Shorii has been established. Up to 70 phosphorite has been used in glass batches. Depending on synthesis conditions and the chemical composition of the glass melt, glass making could be carried out, with as much as 85 of the phosphorus introduced into the batch retained in the melt. Materials produced as a result of crystallization of the phosphorus-containing glass have high mechanical and thermal properties.
