  • Publication number: 20140226090
    Abstract: To provide chemically tempered glass which is less likely to break even if scratched. Chemically tempered glass, which comprises, as represented by mole percentage based on the following oxides, from 56 to 72% of SiO2, from 8 to 20% of Al2O3, from 9 to 25% of Na2O, from 0 to 2% of K2O, and from 0 to 15% of MgO, and which has a surface compressive stress of at least 900 MPa and an internal tensile stress of at most 30 MPa. Glass for chemical tempering, which comprises, as represented by mole percentage based on the following oxides, from 56 to 69% of SiO2, from 8 to 16% of Al2O3, from 9 to 22% of Na2O, from 0 to 1% of K2O, from 5.5 to 14% of MgO, from 0 to 2% of ZrO2, and from 0 to 6% of B2O3.

  • Publication number: 20120297829
    Abstract: To provide a method for producing chemically tempered glass, whereby frequency of replacement of the molten salt can be reduced. A method for producing chemically tempered glass, which comprises repeating ion exchange treatment of immersing glass in a molten salt, wherein the glass comprises, as represented by mole percentage, from 61 to 77% of SiO2, from 1 to 18% of Al2O3, from 3 to 15% of MgO, from 0 to 5% of CaO, from 0 to 4% of ZrO2, from 8 to 18% of Na2O and from 0 to 6% of K2O; SiO2+Al2O3 is from 65 to 85%; MgO+CaO is from 3 to 15%; and R calculated by the following formula by using contents of the respective components, is at least 0.66: R=0.029×SiO2+0.021×Al2O3+0.016×MgO?0.004×CaO+0.016×ZrO2+0.029×Na2O+0×K2O?2.
