Abstract:

The production of heat resistant thermosetting resins based on terphenyl and p-xylylene dichloride in various ratios is described. The strength of the laminates made from these resins is shown not to differ greatly and it is concluded that the cross-linking density remains the same for the three ratios investigated. The resistance of asbestos laminates to gamma radiation and strong alkali is investigated, together with some preliminary strength tests on glass reinforced laminates. Infrared spectrophotometry shows that the methylene groups within both terphenyl and polybenzyl resins are oxidized during aging at elevated temperatures.
