Abstract

Glass-reinforced plastics are becoming increasingly useful for structural application, They are widely used in the home, in industry and in exacting aerospace products. The useful temperature range for the family of reinforced plastics extends from near absolute zero to the extremely high temperatures at which ablation occurs. The cryogenic temperature range is of particular interest because of the extremely desirable mechanical properties that can be attained.
