... factors. However, a gray area is encountered when long glass reinforcement is preplaced in the mold before the chemical reactants, which is more typical of the third category of thermosetting plastics. The third category consists of those thermosetting plastics commonly referred to as fiberglass...

... Abstract This introductory article describes the various aspects of chemical structure that are important to an understanding of polymer properties and thus their eventual effect on the end-use performance of engineering plastics. The polymers covered include hydrocarbon polymers, carbon-chain...

... at 100 °C (212 °F), it is the most widely used matrix-resin system in fiberglass-reinforced boats. The rapid decline in properties results from exposure to water at temperatures well above its T g and general-use temperatures. Martin and Gardner ( Ref 48 ) found that glass-reinforced orthophthalate...

... the carbon absorbs the UV radiation. All UV stabilizers are added to plastics to absorb the harmful radiation, thus preventing it from degrading the base resin. Other types of radiation are typically artificially generated by some human-made device. Medical and industrial facilities often use equipment...

... achieve that as a side benefit. One such example is fiber reinforcement, including fiberglass. “Fiberglass (and other fibrous reinforcements) offer a facile method to significantly enhance the resistance to environmental stress failure. In essence, fibers can bridge the cracks or crazes which may develop...
