Abstract : A program to examine the fundamental phenomena occurring at the interface of glass-resin composites is continued. The role of water at the interface is being studied by drawing E-glass rod from a melt in an anhydrous atmosphere and using it as a reference material with which to compare E-glass rods subjected to aging, treatments with A-1100 silane and water, and roasting. Model glass-epoxide composites were constructed and examined gravimetrically and radiographically for diffusion of water through them. The influence of the variables mentioned above are also examined by modulus of rupture tests and by scintillation counting, following treatments with tritiated water. (Author)
