Paper Abstract

A thin film of SiO coated on abraded Si02 glass was found to improve the mechanical fatigue resistance of the glass in water. The improvement was attributed to an increase in the number of reaction sites on the coated surface, which convert the mobile H2O molecule to immobile SiOH and the consequent reduction of the effective diffusion rate of water into the glass.
