Abstract:

INFORMATION WAS OBTAINED ON THE EFFECT OF STORAGE FOR 9 YEARS IN A NORMAL ATMOSPHERE ON THE COMPRESSIVE PROPERTIES OF GLASS-FABRIC-BASE PLASTIC LAMINATES MADE WITH A TYPICAL POLYESTER RESIN. In thickness and specific gravity, the specimens were comparable. Compressive stiffness and maximum strength had not changed by an appreciable amount after 9 years in storage. Proportional limit strength was lower after aging, but this may not be significant. In general, it can be concluded that storage for 9 years under normal conditions did not produce any significant changes in the compressive properties of typical glass-fabric-base polyester resin laminates.
