Abstract : Ethylene terpolymer compositions were tested for their use as adhesive for bonding glass- polycarbonate laminates. Ethylene terpolymer provides excellent and controllable adhesion to various glasses and polycarbonate. It is elastomeric and stable over a broad temperature range. It was demonstrated that glass-polycarbonate laminates bonded with the ethylene terpolymer could withstand repeated thermal cycling from -60 to 140 F. The potential for using this in unheated aircraft windshields are indicated. Ballistic tests at velocities up to 1500 feet per second confirm the excellent bond strength of this adhisive to both polycarbonate and glass. (Author, modified-PL)
