Description / Abstract:

This specification primarily covers glass fabrics woven from "E" electrical continuous glass fiber rovings that are intended primarily as a reinforcing material in laminated plastics for structural use.

This specification specifies the terminology, definitions, general requirements, and physical requirements for woven roving glass fiber fabrics. This specification permits the application of sizing materials to the glass fiber roving during manufacture that helps facilitate weaving. When used as permitted in this specification, such materials are compatible with the resin matrix as specified in the contracting instrument.

NOTE 1 - Sizing materials on glass fiber yarns, in most cases, are removed by various cleaning procedures as a first stage in preparing a finished fabric. When these yarn sizing materials are removed during a cleaning procedure, they need not be compatible with the subsequent resin matrix.

The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.

NOTE 2 - This specification is one of a series to provide a substitute for the following Military Specifications:

MIL-Y-1140H Yarn, Cord, Sleeving, Cloth, and Tape-Glass

MIL-C-9084C Cloth, Glass Finished for Resin Laminates

MIL-C-19663C Cloth, Glass, Woven Roving for Plastic Laminates
