Current progress continues in process developments to provide “tough” matrix composites. Such a material is borosilicate glass with P-100 carbon fibers. Mechanical properties and impact tests have been performed. Drop-tower tests at a cryogenic temperature of −150°C were performed to determine the effect of low temperature on the impact strength. Composites with 0° and 0°/90° architectures in the “interlaminar” orientation were tested. Tests at 20°C and 150°C were also performed. Low temperature had no significant effect on the composite dynamic work of fracture or mode of fracture.
