Abstract : A new theory is discussed to explain another possible function of a finish at the resin-glass interface in a reinforced plastic. Glass surfaces with and without finishes display chromatographic properties. The data indicate that forces or factors at the interface lead to changes in the liquid resin-hardener ratio. Results are interpreted as evidence for the existence of a flexible resin layer at the interface, which operates to reduce local interlaminar stresses. Different glass fiber finishes postulated to lead to different physical properties in this deformable resin layer, may have important effects on laminate strength properties. (Author)
