A critical and up-to-date review was made on the present knowledge of the surface chemistry and related polymer science involved in the reinforcement of thermosetting and thermoplastic materials by glass or other strong fibers. Although the emphasis is basically on the behavior of glass-reinforcing fibers and particles, wherever possible the discussion and conclusions have been presented to allow their extension directly or by analogy to other strong reinforcing solids. A selected bibliography was compiled of the most significant scientific work published to date. The treatment of the subject has been as fundamental as the scope and reliability of the available data permit. In many instances, available knowledge has been interpreted using the reviewers judgment. Where significant gaps or conflicts have been noted in the literature, they have been discussed constructively. In the concluding sections numerous highly specific recommendations have been made to stimulate or guide future research and development in this complex field. Author
