Abstract:

The continuing effort to evaluate oceanographic environment effects on a wide spectrum of plastic engineering materials, reinforced laminates and other plastics, has been in progress. Submersible Test Unit I-2 test panel array, which is discussed, represents one segment of this continuing effort. This panel array was submerged October 1963 for 751 days at a depth of approximately 5,640 feet in the Port Hueneme Pacific Ocean area. Laboratory studies, after exposure, indicated that, in general, deep sea immersion adversely affected the mechanical properties of most of the materials.
