Abstract : The report describes the accomplishments for the development of two thermoplastic/glass reinforced electricla transmission lines. Covering the assembling of the equipment for impregnation of glass roving, and the evaluation of various glass - thermoplastic filaments. The experimental data to date show that: +. Both E and S glass will give a theoretical strength, above the required 1200 lbs. for the insulated wire. (1800 and 2500 lbs. respectively). 2. Increasing coating percentage increases tensile strength, and abrasion resistance. 3. S glass will be used to make insulated wire while E glass will be used as a screening media. E glass is much less expensive and more readily available. (Author)
