Glass powder injection molding offers an alternative, powderbased route to conventional glass component manufacturing, which mainly starts from a molten glass. It allows for largescale production of glass components with complex geometries, microstructured surfaces, and sharp edges without any additional costly grinding or etching steps. The final product properties are attained by debinding and sintering, as is the case for ceramic components. As a special advantage of the powder-based shaping route, additional functionalization of the glass component can be achieved through addition of secondary phases, such as pigments or graphite powder in particle form. For instance, an electrically conductive glass component that can be used as a heating element owing to its ohmic resistance has been attained by the addition of graphite powder.
