Mechanical Properties of Fused Quartz

Mechanical properties of fused quartz are much the same as those of other glasses. The material is extremely strong in compression, with design compressive strength of better than 1.1 x 109 Pa (160,000 psi).

Surface flaws can drastically reduce the inherent strength of any glass, so tensile properties are greatly influenced by these defects. The design tensile strength for fused quartz with good surface quality is in excess of 4.8 x 107 Pa (7,000 psi). In practice, a design stress of  0.68 x 107 Pa (1,000 psi) is generally recommended.
