Abstract : A method of making fiber reinforced glass composite articles utilizes preimpregnated preforms which are bound with a temporary plastic binder. The binder is removed in a gradient oven and the frit or preform is drawn through pultrusion die assembly heated to the degree necessary to render the frit workable. Deformation in the heated die assembly is maintained during cooling, resulting in a formed glass composite article.
