Abstract

Series of glasses based on Al2O3-K2O-P2O5 have successfully been made by sol gel method. The amorphous state has been confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) while the actual composition has been determined using Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis. The glass density is determined using Archimedes method while the Vickers Micro hardness Test has been used to measure the hardness. It is found that all the samples are amorphous in nature with their actual composition contained phosphate in the range of 40-53% mol. It is also observed that the glass density is about 2.4 gcm-3 while the hardness is in the range of 40-100 Hv, depending on composition.
