 MgO-${Al_2}{O_3}$-$SiO_2$계 결정화유리의 제조 및 물성평가 손성범, 최세영 연세대학교 재료공학부 Preparation and Characterization of Glass-ceramics in MgO-${Al_2}{O_3}$-$SiO_2$ Glass ABSTRACT Glass-ceramics containing a cordierite (2MgO-2Al2O3-5SiO2) as a main crystal phase was prepared from MgO-Al2O3-SiO2 system glass through a controlled 2-step heat treatment for the application to magnetic memory disk substrate for higher storage capacity. Parent glasses prepared with addition of CeO2 as a fulx and TiO2 as a nucleating agent were crystallized by a 2-step heat treatment i.e. nucleation and crystal grwoth. Then the maximum nucleation and crystal growth rates were investigated and several properties such as bending strength, surface hardness and surface roughness were also studied for heat treated glass. As a result, only a $alpha$-cordierite was precipitated as a main crystal phase for all heat treatment conditions and the maximum nucleation and crystal growth rates were 2.4$times$109/㎣.hr at 80$0^{circ}C$ and 0.3${mu}{textrm}{m}$/hr at 915$^{circ}C$ respectively. After being nucleated at 80$0^{circ}C$ for 5 hours and then crystallized at 915$^{circ}C$ for 1 hour, the heat treated glass had a crystal volume fraction of 17.6% and crystal size fo 0.3${mu}{textrm}{m}$, and showed the optimum properties for the application to magnetic memory disk substrates as follows. ; Bending strength of 192 MPa, Vidkers hardness of 642.1kgf/$textrm{mm}^2$, and surface roughness of 27$AA$.
