Abstract:

This invention is a method of hot hardening glass-reinforced plastics with any dimensions and for any purpose. We know of a method of hot hardening glass-reinforced plastics in which a metal grid or wire to which current is subsequently supplied is inserted inside the glass-reinforced packet. The heat from the heated wire causes the binder to harden. However, the introduction of a metal grid or wire, which is a foreign body in a glass-reinforced plastic, reduces adhesion, thus disrupting its solidity, and makes the construction more difficult. The purpose of this invention is to improve the physicomechanical characteristics of the material. This is accomplished by using glass cloth with a carbon coating as the heat source for hardening the glass reinforced plastic. Keywords Russian translations.
