Abstract:

This report covers an evaluation of three laminated transparent acrylic materials for use in the fabrication of aircraft gun-sighting domes. Regular grade BMS 8-4 heat resistant MIL P-7524, and modified 5105XP acrylic laminates, all with standard polyvinyl butyral interlayer, were tested. Two laminators supplied the 5105XP test laminates. The various testing procedures compared the laminates with respect to 1ultimate tensile strength at -65 F, room temperature, and 160 F, 2time required for crazing and failure under long time tensile loads of 750, 1000, and 4000 psi, and 3resistance to natural Florida and accelerated weathering. The tests also identified suitable cements for bonding extruded rubber edge attachments to each test material and evaluated the heat stability of the interlayer material. Author, modified-PL.
