Abstract:

This report discusses the range of practices recommended for use of the acrylic plastic material in windows of hyperbaric chambers. The information covers material, magnitude of pressure service, type of pressure service and range of ambient temperatures. The plastic discussed is methyl metacrylate, commonly known as acrylic plastic. The pressure service is limited to 3500 psia pressure differential between internal and external pressures, which are understood to be of static or cyclic nature. Temperature service is limited to temperatures in the - 60 to 150 F range.
