Many military specifications exist for the purchase of laminated plastics materials for government use. These documents adequately specify physical properties at ambient conditions but leave to the procuring agency the details as to what is to be considered acceptable workmanship in quality in regard to the classification of defects. This report supplements those specifications by picturing common flaws and defects and by discussing each and its possible effect on laminated items under various conditions of service usage as encountered with naval ordnance. Thus the procuring agency is provided with a basis of specifying workmanship and quality in a more exact fashion. Still remaining to be collected, for full and complete specification purposes, is mechanical and chemical property data on the materials themselves under the many environmental conditions common to the military service.
