Abstract : A test apparatus comprising an elongated, heat-resistant glass tube, the ends of which are firmly seated in top and bottom end-caps. A plurality of threaded rods extending through the top and bottom end-caps parallel to the glass tube and having nuts threaded on their ends provides means for holding the end-caps in place. The top end-cap has two threaded ports to which fluid inlet and outlet lines are attached while its interior surfaces has an attachment means for supporting a test specimen within the glass tube. The test apparatus is particularly suitable for performing tests on polymeric film or composites under different environmental conditions. (Author)
