Abstract : A heat resistant, glass fabric base, plastic honeycomb was fabricated to a nominal 6 lbs/cu. ft. density. Stabilized flatwise compressive strength and modulus were determined in air at room temperature, at 500, 600, 700, 900 and at 1000 F after 1/3 hour and 1 hour at temperatures. Flatwise compressive strength and modulus were also measured on the material at 600 F after heat aging for 1, 10, 50, 100, 150 and 200 hours at 600 F in air. In addition, flatwise tensile strength was evaluated at room temperature on specimens heat aged 1, 10, 100 and 192 hours at 500, 550 and 600 F, respectively. The outstanding heat resistance of this honeycomb was evident when compared with a commercially available, heat resistant, phenolic honeycomb tested under similar conditions. (Author)
