The values for viscosity of sodium-borate melts, containing 1 wt % of mechanically activated REE oxides of the lanthanide group in the temperature range of 950-650K were determined by means of vibrational viscosimeter. The dependences of viscosity values on temperature and composition were established. High- and low-temperature sections are observed in logarithmic dependences with different activation energies of the viscous flow. The changes of melts structure on composition and temperature were established.
