Abstract : A program to determine the properties of plastic laminates prepared from melting glass fibers resulted in a retention of 31% of the room temperature flexural strength at 1000 F and 22% at 1500 F. The loss in strength was believed to be primarily due to the marked thermal decomposition of the resin matrix at the elevated temperatures. A program to determine the properties of plastic laminates prepared from YM-31-A (high modulus) glass flakes resulted in an increase of 25% in compressive strength over laminates prepared from E glass flakes. Other mechanical properties were comparable to those obtained from E glass flake laminates. Commercially available glass-finish systems were optimized for YM-31-A glass fibers when used with different types of laminating resins. (Author)
