The loss of strength of tensile specimens of polymethyl methacrylate as a result of stress-solvent crazing at 23 degrees C and 50-percent relative humidity was investigated. The materials tested were commercial cast polymethyl-methacrylate sheets of both heat- resistant and ordinary grades from each of two manufacturers.
