Effect of boron oxide addition on fibre drawing, mechanical properties and dissolution behaviour of phosphate-based glass fibres with fixed 40, 45 and 50 mol% P2O5.
Bottom Line: The mechanical properties of the fibres were found to significantly increase with increasing B2O3 content.Initial loss of mechanical properties due to annealing was found to be recovered with degradation.Both annealed and non-annealed fibres exhibited a peeling effect of the fibre's outer layer during degradation.

Mentions: The effect of annealing on the density of the fibres was also evaluated (Figure 3). It was found that the density of the annealed fibres was significantly (P < 0.001) higher than the non-annealed ones.Figure 3.
