Two types of glass were used 1 Chemcor produced by Corning Glass Works and 2 Herculite II produced by the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company. There was no difference between the effectiveness of the rain repellent applied to chemically hardened glass and to the conventionally treated safety glass. The initial and subsequent adhesion of the repellent film was essentially the same. It is not anticipated that the chemically hardened surfaces will interfere with inflight-applied rain repellents conforming to the requirements of MIL-R-81261WEP. Author
