NEW APPLICATIONS OF NON-METALLIC MATERIALS ABOARD SHIP
Non-metallic materials-laminated plastics, extrusions, moldings, structural plastics, singleskin and sandwich structures and especially glass reinforced plastics are finding increasing use, and consideration for further use in the field of marine engineering. In this paper, examples are given of non-metallic materials and items which have already been fabricated and service tested. Areas for improvement and solutions for problems encountered in these items are proposed, as well as suggestions for new applications aboard ship. Properties and costs of plastics are discussed.
