Abstract:

This report contains the results of 1975 testing on LGM-30 Stage III Wing VI unique OPRI specimens. Testing was accomplished in accordance with MMEMP GTD-30, Amend 1 by authority of Project M62419M, DO12-097P. Case bond tensile tests were not conducted at this test period due to insufficient specimens available for testing. Average peel strength for System 22 shows a significant increase. There are significant trends in the adhesive and potting compounds. Peel specimens in general are not producing data relative to the adhesive, but rather to the Buna-S insulator. Spiralloy layer lap shear shows a significant increase in lap shear strength. Since there are no failure criteria for adhesives, service life estimates cannot be made. The limited number of specimens available using Epon 923.2 place constraints on extensive testing and analysis. Author
