FABRICATION OF FIBERGLASS REINFORCED PLASTIC SURFACING UNDER WET CONDITIONS
The purpose of this investigation was to develop a system to be used in the construction of fiberglass-reinforced plastic surfacings for soil under wet conditions. The effect of water in the substrate and in the fiberglass mat, on laminate properties, has been defined and solutions have been developed for some of the problems. A system of chemical components has been developed for the field placement of the reinforced plastic soil surfacings under wet conditions, that is superior to that presently used and is usable with the basic spray equipment now used by the Marine Corps.
