Summary

This paper surveys the various Pt-glass reactions encountered in glassmelting and suggests reaction mechanisms for each case. Problems such as glass color. Pt lncluslons, blisters Jorming at Pt-glass interfaces, and Pt failures due to metallic contamination are discussed. The effects of atmosphere, glass composition, and temperature as they relate to these Pt-glass reactions are also described.
