EXPERIMENTAL FOUNDATIONS OF THE USE OF MEDIUM BASE CONTENT GLASS FIBER REINFORCED PLASTIC MATERIALS IN SHIP BUILDING

This document reports on the development of medium-base glass fiber reinforced plastic materials in China. According to the authors, experimental work has demonstrated the feasibility of using this new type of fiber (called Class C fiber) in shipbuilding with a 15-20% reduction in ship-body construction costs. While the strength of the Class C fibers is lower than that of base-free glass fibers, the medium-base fiber shows satisfactory water-resisting capability when treated with a reinforcing immersion agent.
