Effect of Low-Melting Glass on Thermal and Physical Properties of Polymer Composites

Low-melting glass has been synthesized in the system PbO-ZnO-B2O3 and Na2O-P2O5-MoO3 and its composition has been developed. The effect of the glass chemical composition on the softening temperature and the change of appearance during the heating have been established. Polypropylene-based composite with different content of glass powder as a filler was obtained. Thermophysical properties of the composites were determined. Introduction of glass powder to the polypropylene composition damaged the material structure homogeneity.
