Summary

The devitrification characteristics of high-silica (70-90%) glasses for use in potential higher temperature coatings on advanced insulation systems for space vehicles were determined at 1260°C after 24 h. These data indicate that additives can be used to maintain the stability of these coatings relative to cristobalite formation.
