Abstract : Mylar was the most effective heat-resistant interlayer material investigated for aircraft laminated glass. The material withstood 4000 F for 2 hr without deleterious effects. Mylar-glass laminates maintained shatter resistance throughout the range of -65 to 400 F under simulated flight conditions. Epoxy-type adhesives produced the best bonding between Mylar and glass. Other polymers which were tested displayed insufficient thermal stability and/or poor optical properties. (See also AD-1663)
