Glass ceramics are microcrystalline solids that are produced by the controlled devitrification of glass. Glasses are molten and fabricated to the required shape; they are finally converted by heat treatment to form a crystalline ceramic. Controlled crystallization lies in efficient internal nucleation, permitting the development of fine and randomly oriented grains without microcracks, voids, or other porosity. The ability to be formed into complex shapes by blowing, pressing, and rolling by employing a high-speed plastic forming processes that are used in glass industry is a significant advantage of glass ceramics over conventional ceramics.
The properties exhibited by glass ceramics depend upon the microstructure of the ceramics and the composition of the raw materials used. The bulk chemical compositions help in monitoring the ability to form a glass and its degree of workability.
Silicate-based wastes such as slag from steel production, coal combustion ash, filter dust from waste incinerators and fly ash, and mud from metal hydrometallurgy along with different forms of sludge and mixtures of glass cullet have been considered for the manufacture of glass ceramics.
