Abstract : Due to the hydrophilic nature of glass fibers, upon the adsorption of water there is a considerable reduction of their surface energy. Addition to the water of surface-active substances (from 0.5 to 1%), possessing high polarity, causes an additional drop in strength during both short-term and prolonged loading. It was revealed that after hydrophobization of the surface of glass fibers from nonalkali glass by organosilicon compounds there is no change of strength in time. Thus, it has been established that hydrophobization of the surface of glass fibers by organic organosilicon substances improves their mechanical, electrical and adhesional properties. (Author)
