    Abstract

    The test method reported herein was designed and is being developed specifically for use in production facilities for process and quality control of glass fiber strands, yarns, and rovings intended for use in reinforced plastics. The following is essentially an initial progress report on the general method which is believed to show promise of being satisfactory for the intended use. The procedure, as it now stands, is reported in detail with photographs and drawings of all equipment required. The basis for selection of the various test parameters is explained. Data are presented and discussed for several types of glass fiber strands and yarns at different strength levels. Only preliminary feasibility trials have been made with rovings and slight modifications to the method reported herein will have to be made to test rovings.
