Abstract:

Tensile strength-temperature relations for Eglass monofilaments coated with A1100 coupling agent, CIBA 6005 epoxy resin, DC 2106 silicone resin, and SC 1013 phenolic resin show that each coating by itself improves fiber strength retention up to temperatures of 500 - 600 F. Tensile tests at elevated temperatures on production E-glass fibers showed that the mechanical damage incurred in textile production processing masks the effects of various coatings. A high temperature candidate experimental glass composition, X-815, was studied both uncoated and coated, and was found to have strengths above 200,000 psi at temperatures up to 1500 F. Houze glass fibers had average virgin strengths of 500,000 psi at room temperature. Service temperature limit of this glass is 1400 F compared to 1240 F for E-glass and 1750 F for X-815 glass.
