abstract Panel (P) and funnel (F) glasses from Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) have been used to obtain glass foams by a simple and economic processing route, consisting of direct heating the glass powders at relatively low temperatures (650-750 degrees C) using different foaming agents (FA) such as egg shells, calcite, dolomite. Mixtures in different proportions of P and F glass powders were tested and the effects of composition and heat treatment temperature on the foaming behaviour were evaluated. Glass foams featuring apparent density and compressive strength values of 0.29 g/cm(3) and 2.34 MPa, respectively, could be produced from a P/F ratio = 1 with added 3 wt% of egg shells upon heat treating at 700 degrees C for 15 min. The P/F ratio was found to strongly influence the foaming behaviour and, consequently, the physical properties of the final foam glass. The relative performance of other foaming agents under a given set of experimental conditions revealed to be dependent on the type of glass (composition and thermal properties).
