Fused Silica Window
Fused Silica Window Chemical Composition -This glass consists solely of the amorphous (non-crystalline) type of high-purity silica (SiO2). Other popular glasses, on the other hand such as (Pyrex, borosilicate, soda-lime, etc.) are blended composition glasses they will include components such as Na2O, CaO, and B2O3 in relation to SiO2. These extra components alter the optical and mechanical properties of the glass and reduce the melting temperature of the mixture. On the other hand, Fused Silica is pure SiO2. It has a much greater working and melting temperature than other popular optical lenses and has outstanding optical, thermal and mechanical characteristics.
Fused Silica Windows Chemical Purity
Contaminants have subtle but substantial impacts despite their existence at very small concentrations. The purity of the material, the production process and subsequent processes is mostly determined by the raw material. At all phases of the production method, special precautions need to be taken to preserve high pureness.
Metals (including Al-Na and Fe), water (included in the OH group), and chlorine are the most prevalent impurities. The viscosity, optical absorption and electric characteristics of the glass are affected by such contaminants.
