- molten glass;
- chemical interactions;
- fundamental physics
The interaction of gases with molten glass depends upon reactions within the batch, the atmospheric environment above the melt, and the fundamental gas solubilities and diffusivities. Generally, the most important practical problem stemming from gas/molten glass interaction is the generation of bubble-defects. Their removal from the melt by flotation and dissolution may be significantly affected by the choice of melting and refining processes.
