Abstract : Several reinforced plastic laminates that show promise of having good strength properties at elevated temperatures are being evaluated to determine their strength and elastic properties. This report presents properties of a phenylsilane laminate made of a formulation of resins and glass fabric. In general strength properties decreased with increases in temperature. Strengths dropped with the first application of heat, but at constant temperatures of 300 and 400 F., the exposed material showed a tendency to recover some of that lost strength. Continued exposure above 500 F., however, did not result in recovery of strength. From the curves and data, the environmental effects on individual strength properties may be judged separately for temperatures between 80 and 1,000 F. and exposure periods between 0.05 and 1,000 hours.
