Scientists develop ‘rubber’ transparent oxide glass

Tokyo – Researchers based at Tokyo Institute of Technology have developed a new form of ‘rubber-like’ glass which may have applications in high temperature or strongly oxidative environments

Flexible substances that can withstand high temperatures are much sought after for various industrial and engineering applications. Types of glass made from oxides are hard at room temperature and fracture easily, but scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology and Asahi Glass Co. Ltd in Yokohama have uncovered a certain kind of oxide glass – so-called mixed alkali metaphosphate glass…
