Abstract:

A design allowables test program was conducted on Celion 6000LARC-160 graphite polyimide composite to establish material performance over a 116 K -250 deg F to 589 K 600 deg F temperature range. Tension, compression, in-plane shear and short beam shear properties were determined for uniaxial, quasi-isotropic and or -45 deg laminates. Effects of thermal aging and moisture saturation on mechanical properties were also evaluated. Celion 6000LARC-160 graphitepolyimide can be considered an acceptable material system for structural applications to 389 K 600 deg F.
