Give the properties and application of glass.

Glass - It is an inorganic material made by the fusion of various metallic oxides. The properties of glass are as -

Glass is transparent, hard and brittle. It is insoluble in water and usual organic solvents. Glass has low dielectric loss, slow ageing and also good mechanical strength. Glass is susceptible to destruction while sudden and high temperature cycles are applied

Uses - It is used in moulded insulating devices as electrical bushings, fuse bodies, insulators. It is used as a dielectric in capacitors. Television tubes and Radio, electrical laminated boards also utilize glass

Glass Products

a) Silica glass or fused quartz

b) Borosilicate glass or Pyrex

c) Fibre glass insulation

d) Epoxy glass
