The leaching behavior of cathode ray tube (CRT) funnel glass containing 23 mass percent of Pb in 0.001N HCl, distilled water, and 0.001N NaOH at 90°C was investigated using a static method. The weight loss and leached amount of each component was measured and surface changes observed by SEM. The leaching mechanism is discussed. In acid solution, the leached amount of Pb showed t1/2 dependence, that is, diffusion-controlled dependence, which is common in lead silicate glasses. In water and basic solutions, the leached amount showed saturation after higher initial dissolution than in acid and the deposition of many particles on the surface was observed. The amount leached was less for Pb than other components. The deposited particles formed a protective layer, which suppressed the dissolution of the glass. This dense layer must be formed as a result of a high initial dissolution rate.
