Results of mechanical tests of the following laminated plastics are reported: canvas laminate molded at low pressure, grade-C canvas laminate, rayon laminate, paper laminate, and glass-fabric laminate. The following tests were performed on these materials: static tension, compression, and torsion tests; long-time creep tests at different stresses on specimens loaded in tension; fatigue tests of unnotched specimens in bending; fatigue tests of notched specimens in bending; fatigue test in bending at temperatures of -75, 77, and 160 degrees F; and fatigue tests in torsion.
