Mixed Alkali Glasses -- Their Properties and Uses
The mixed alkali effect in glass refers to the large, orders of magnitude, changes in many properties when a second alkali oxide is added. Properties most affected are those associated with alkali ion movement such as electrical conductivity and loss, alkali diffusion, internal friction, viscosity and chemical durability. The compositional dependence of these properties is briefly reviewed and examples are given of the relevance of the mixed alkali effect to the manufacture of commercial glasses. Also reviewed are various theories for this scientifically interesting effect.
