Summary

Sensors for measuring the properties of molten glass require protective sensor sheaths in order to shield them from the extremely corrosive molten glass environment. MoSi2 has been shown to possess excellent corrosion resistance in molten glass, making it a candidate material for advanced sensor sheath applications. MoSi2-coated Al2O3 tubes, MoSi2-Al2O3 laminate composite tubes, and MoSi2-Al2O3 functionally graded composite tubes have been produced by plasma spray-forming techniques for such applications.
