Understanding how glass composition influences nucleation and crystallisation behaviour in glasses from the ternary systemcordierite-fluormica-tricalcium phosphate

A thorough understanding of how glass composition influences the nucleation and crystallisation behaviour of glasses from the ternary system barium fluorphlogopite-cordierite-tricalcium phosphate has been established.

The parameters that influence crystal nucleation of the fluorphlogopite phase have been established.

Other partners in the consortium have characterised the microstructural development (CRIBC, machinability (Morgan Matroc) and Mechanical properties of these compositions(MI).
